A small group of weary travelers discover the power of the season while trapped in a lonely train station on Christmas
Eve. As a blizzard rages outside, the troubled people are forced to turn to each other for companionship. Trying to make
them more comfortable is the old stationmaster, Charlie. When the clock strikes midnight, there is a knock on the station
door and seven youngsters appear. They’ve seen the station lights from the nearby church where, in secret, they’ve been
practicing the story of the nativity which they plan to present at regular service. They offer to perform their play for the
travelers, and afterward they speak to the travelers individually, giving advice that is seemingly wise beyond their years.
