A Hobos Christmas

A Hobos Christmas


With Christmas around the corner, Chance – a rider of the rails for more then twenty-five years – makes one last attempt to reunite with his family for the holidays. His son Charlie, a single dad to two young children, has never forgiven Chance for abandoning him so long ago. But in the spirit of the season, Charlie reluctantly lets his father visit for Christmas week, and the old man wins the love of his grandchildren with his colorful tales of life as a hobo. And when father and son finally come together as family, it’s a special Christmas, together, that they’ll never forget.

Dove Review

A Christmas tale about a reunited family. Chance has been traveling the rails as a hobo for years and this year his goal is to spend it with his son and grandchildren. But 25 years is a long time to be parted from your family you so desperately want to be with and there are resentful feelings to overcome. This is the case for Chance and his son Charlie.

Although this is a story of forgiveness and the re-acquaintance of a family for the holiday season, unfortunately it cannot receive our family approval due to a vocal damnation toward another person (See content below), placing it outside the Dove guidelines.
