It’s 1967, and the Vietnam War is tearing the country apart, slicing through generations and shattering families. Because of Japanese atrocities he witnessed as a Marine in the South Pacific during WWII, Frank McRae despises all Asians. Now his son, Mike, is a grunt in Vietnam, and his wife, Maggie, is fighting her own battle. When Mike falls in love with Thi Nhuong, a young Buddhist woman, and marries her in spite of his father’s objections, Frank disowns him. Then as Christmas approaches, Frank’s world is torn apart, and he turns bitter, closing his heart to God and his family.
What Frank doesn’t know is that on this bleak Christmas Eve, God has in mind a miracle. As on that holy night so long ago, a baby will be born and laid in a manger–a baby who will bring forgiveness, peace, and healing to a family that has suffered heart-wrenching loss.
