Christmas Eve is the wrong time to be laid off, especially for someone with a wife, two children, and one on the way. A return to the bottle, a crutch in hard times since his homecoming from World War II six years ago, seems Chipper Gaines's only recourse. However, three mysterious encounters that night begin Chipper on a journey to healing for himself and his family.
