Summary
It's 1931 in Bakersfield, California. America is in the midst of the Depression, and the Kamp family is struggling to get by, especially after Mrs. Kamp's untimely death. Now, with her mother gone and her father overwhelmed by doctor bills resulting from her brother's polio, little Ruthie expects another Christmas without presents or festivities. But when her father brings home one dollar in change and lets the children use it to buy special gifts for each other, the Kamp family comes to find that money isn't what makes Christmas full of joy, love, and miracles. This touching true story ... will remind you and your family of the simple joys in life and the importance of selflessness, gratitude, and charity
