Jack, a sixty-eight year old writer who lost his wife to cancer is devastated and bitter. He seeks refuge from the rest of the world by retreating to the old family cabin. His only surviving family members are his daughter Kate and her two children: thirteen year old Johnathon and nine year old Sarah. Kate has not seen her father since shortly after her mother's death almost eight years before. Johnathon has only a vague recollection of his grandfathe and Sarah has no memories of him at all, but carries with her a picture of her grandfather holding her when she was only a few months old. When Kate arrives at her father's cabin on the afternoon of Christmas Eve and asks him if her children can stay with him for a few days, Jack is reluctant...but finally agrees. Through Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day, Jack and the children struggle to discover each other - and to everyone's surprise, realize that they have received an unexpected Christmas gift: the gift of family, the most precious gift of all.
