    Christmas Eve, 1943
    A small Georgia town struggles with the rationing and sacrifices of America at war. Christmas is no exception as 11-year-old Gordy (Aidan Rogers) and his sister Priscilla (Emily Jordan) sense a fear in the train station where they await their father’s homecoming. Propaganda posters and tense adult talk drive home the evil of the enemy.

    When a train loaded with German prisoners arrives in the station, Gordy’s curiosity is stronger then his fear. He dares to approach the prison train and makes contact with a young German soldier named Hans (Silvio Wolf Busch). Through the courage to trust and the song Silent Night, friends and foes learn the true meaning of Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men, and hearts are forever changed. Based on true events.
