A forgotten treasure
16 December 2018 | by asarandesSee all my reviews

Halfway through I started to remember that I saw this movie when it came out. What a truly inspiring little gem it is. A wonderful tale of the legend of Santa that spans race, creed and religion. I hope more people discover this film filled with wonderful actors and a great message.
