For the Boyajian family, Christmas has not been the same since their son was killed in the Gulf War. There has been no reason or desire to celebrate, but George, the father, decides that it's time to start being a family again. He picks up a lonely hitchhiker who he talks into pretending that he knew his dead son, in order to bring some warmth and humanity back into his house, but both George and his family have their faith and humanity restored in ways that none of them expected.
Description by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment:
In the small American town of New Chatham, Christmas is approaching for the Boyajian family. But father George (Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee William Devane, Knots Landing), mother Carol (Emmy® nominee Meredith Baxter, Family Ties), and their daughter, Jean (Reagan Pasternak, Jailbait), have lost the desire to celebrate. Immersed in grief since the death of their son on Christmas Eve 1991, in the Persian Gulf War, George and Carol have forgone the familial comfort and pleasures of the holidays. But this year, George's annual visit to his son's grave has renewed faith in a heartsick father. Splitting logs for a Yule fire and retrieving old ornaments from the attic, George is determined to bring his family together. His wish comes true in ways none of them could have anticipated.
From Hallmark Entertainment, A Christmas Visitor is a holiday gift of undying love and faith for the entire family.
