Film Synopsis from CFDb:
The approaching holiday season sets the scene for a battle, long in the making.
Christmas is under attack. The true celebration of Christ’s birth has been lost in a sea of tolerance and apathy.
Bob Revere, a decorated veteran and mayor, reconnects with his past when his alienated grandson, Chris, moves back to town. Through the discovery of a series of video diaries found in a footlocker, Chris wrestles with understanding the supreme sacrifice that his father Thomas made fighting for their freedom. Even more poignantly, realizing that their own freedoms have been slipping away, Bob and Chris question that while Thomas died fighting for their freedom, what are they doing now? What can one grandpa do? What can one kid do?
As the story unfolds, we find out just how much difference one ordinary person can make. Bob, the grandpa who serves as mayor of his hometown as it is entering the holiday season, determines to bring back the “true” celebration of Christmas to Mount Columbus. Chris encounters his own challenges for freedom at school while Bob’s fight for freedom brings him face to face with the hard-hitting ACLO.
Find out what happens as Bob exclaims, “My fight isn’t about colored lights and a Christmas tree on the city square. It’s about freedom, and taking back what’s been stolen from us. One by one we have lost freedoms that our forefathers, our brothers in arms and my son died for. It’s time we stand up for what they died for, for what we believe in.”
This movie is Rated PG and Dove Family-Approved.
