The Story of A Christmas Wish

Meet Martha Evans (played by Kristy Swanson), a mother of 3 kids who finds herself down on her luck after a horrific turn of events just one week before Christmas. With only 7 days to Christmas, she wakes up to find her husband has left her, and not only has he left her (most likely never to return), but he has left with all three kids and no money. Having found out she is left to provide for the kids, she has no money, and can hardly afford to feed her kids their next meal, Martha breaks down, out of options and unsure of how she can even go on with life. With nothing left to lose, she packs the kids up and takes off for a new town with new people where she can hopefully find a new life, a job, and a place to successfully raise her kids. It's difficult for Martha at first, and she seeks around desperately for a job. Eventually, she winds up at a small diner where she meets Trudy (played by Tess Harper), the owner of the small and quiet diner. She begs her for a job, and after convincing her that she can work for minimum wage plus tips, she gets the job at least until Christmas. The next week finds Martha living her life one day at a time, trying to make enough to survive and feed her kids their next meal. But as the bills pile up, her car breaks down, and Christmas gets closer and closer, Martha begins to realize that it's going to be impossible for her to make it on her own.

Despite all of these setbacks, A Christmas Wish depicts a small town with a bright and happy environment and a cheerful array of kind characters in this lovely town. As Martha meets more of the locals, she gets more and more built up and excited about the future ahead. She begins to see the value in people and her faith begins to be restored. That all changes, however, when her ex-husband Cal returns into her life. He shows up with one purpose -- to take on the last thing from Martha before they part ways: his son. Martha is extremely hurt when her son realizes he would rather be with his dad, knowing he can provide for him better and that it would seem to be the better offer. And so, Martha is disconnected from her step-son and now she is left to fend for herself with her two daughters. Martha once again begins to feel hopeless -- until the townspeople surround her with love in order to help her have the best Christmas ever. A Christmas Wish is ultimately a story of hope, depicting a beautiful small town with people who are willing to help and support each other. Martha and her daughters begin to grow closer and they know that despite all of the loss, despite all of the loneliness and stress, they are in for what might be the greatest Christmas ever! A Christmas Wish is a beautiful and heartwarming Christmas tale, and makes for a perfect film to ring in the season. If you're looking for a new tradition this holiday, or you're ready to start making room for new Christmas classics on your DVD shelf, it wouldn't be complete without A Christmas Wish.
