Synopsis:
Meet Elmer (Mickey Rooney), an old man with precious little to show for his long life other than a few meager possessions and a handful of homeless acquaintances. Elmer is a cheerful, petty thief getting by on a smile and an ingenuity that with his advancing age is beginning to fail. While breaking into a car, Elmer is caught by the owner, a stiff-lipped man named Reg, who has no patience for a common criminal and who is not one bit sentimental about it being the holiday season. In exchange for his freedom, Elmer goes to work for Reg doing odd jobs to compensate for the damages. Amanda, Reg's adorable 6 year-old, and Elmer take an immediate liking to each other. The little girl is convinced that Santa has brought her a grandfather for Christmas. Good performances and a touch of the supernatural help along a solid sentimental journey.

Dove Worldview:
Here is a wonderful story about a man who thinks he has lost everything only to learn he has a lot to live for after all.

Elmer (Mickey Rooney) marries young but it doesn't last due to interference from his wife's family, who thinks the poor young man isn't good enough for her. She regrets leaving him and sometime later a tragedy occurs and a secret is hidden from Elmer for a long time.

Eventually Elmer learns about a son he didn't know he had, Reginald, and he meets him in an unusual way. The story is heartwarming and features a nice Christmas theme which will touch the viewer. Themes of forgiveness and fresh starts are featured in this remarkable story. It will renew your faith in holiday miracles! We gladly present this film our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages and five Doves too, our best rating.
