Sappy Christmas drama set in the 1930s. The Jenkins family, headed by gruff furniture maker Grins (Bakula), live a hard-but-happy life in the Appalachia mountains, with mom Sharon (Nixon) raising their four kids. Then Sharon is diagnosed with tuberculosis and is sent to a sanatorium. But Grins builds a glass room onto the house so she can see the children without infecting them, and brings her home to die. After her death, Grins takes to the moonshine and the kids are left to fend for themselves--he doesn't even want to celebrate Christmas! Based on the book by Collin Wilcox Paxton and Gary Carden.
