One Christmas long ago in a far-away country, there stood a giant cathedral with a bell tower so high it was veiled in a mist. Around these bells had grown through the years a legend and a ceremony: only when a very special gift was given did the bells ring, and then of their own accord, their delicate tones pealing down through the clouds. At the time of our story they had not been heard within human memory.

Two small boys journey through the snowy countryside excited to celebrate the Christmas festivities at the Cathedral and offer their gift to the Christ child. Along the way they find a beggar woman half frozen in the snow and must decide whether to continue their journey, or offer aid. What happens next is a Christmas miracle – born of a selfless act in the name of another…

Time: Christmas Eve
Place: A Far-away Kingdom
