THE CHRISTMAS ORATORIO

  • Description
  • A gripping family saga of

    longing and passion begins one illfated

    summer day and spans three

    generations trying to deal with the

    loss of a beloved young wife and

    mother. Encompassing sorrow, joy,

    passion, pain, humor, and a plenitude

    of wonderful characters in a lush

    country setting, this is a film about the

    remarkable capability humans have to

    somehow find a light to lead us out of

    the depths of sorrow.
