Can a gift from the past mend a broken heart? Ian Collins is an old man without his son. Patrick Collins is a young boy without his father. On his Christmas list are only three items.

With simple grace, it reminds us of the small things that affect powerful change in our hearts - a young boy's prayers, a shoe box of love letters, and even a half-carved soldier, long forgotten.
