Christmas is traditionally a time for bringing families together, but as the streetwise teen at the centre of this feel-good musical drama discovers, it can be a difficult process. Shipped off to New York by his broke, single mum, Langston's set to spend the holidays with grandparents he's never met. However the rebellious youngster finds his ultra-strict granddad, Reverend Cornell, increasingly hard to handle, making him determined to return to his Baltimore home. What follows is an emotional journey that explores the true meaning of family, faith and forgiveness. Adapted from a famous 1960s play retelling the Nativity story, this festive film combines strong performances with seriously uplifting gospel singing.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
