What a delightful story of unconditional love, friendship, goodwill and magical Christmas gifts! Aaron and Mo, 11 and 9 respectively, meet an odd mall Santa who invites them to meet him at a hospital to be his Christmas elves. Inititally, the brothers do not know that their father set this life-changing meeting up. Aaron and Mo learn more about giving and the true meaning of Christmas in that holiday season of 1980 than they ever would again for the rest of their lives. A little girl lie dying in her hospital bed, yet she gives of herself and her gifts are beyond comprehension. In turn, Aaron and Mo learn to give of themselves, become true friends to those in need and are bestowed with life-long loves and presents that are truly priceless. A heart-warming story that makes each one of step back and appreciate what it is the Christmas story is meant to tell.
