Christmas Heart, The
Not yet reviewed.
A record storm is headed for the Great Lakes, but the holiday spirit of the families on Arthur Avenue in Cleveland won’t be broken. It’s only days until Christmas and nothing can prevent them from their annual lighting of the Christmas luminaries. But everything changes when neighborhood couple Mike and Ann Norman discover that their teenage son, Matt, has suddenly collapsed during basketball practice. Suffering from a rare heart condition, his chance of survival is slim without a transplant. With only a short window to save him, the Normans are devastated, hoping against hope for a miracle.
Days later, more than 150 miles away in Detroit, a tragic accident claims the ill-fated life of baby-faced punk Jimmy Mars. He’s left behind a pregnant girlfriend named Nikki and a broken mother, Elizabeth. After wrestling with her emotions, and as Nikki prepares to give birth, Elizabeth agrees to donate her son’s heart. She has no way of knowing what such a decision means to a family of strangers on Arthur Avenue. But as the winter squall bears down, the transportation of the heart is impeded by escalating complications. With time running out, the Normans can only wait and pray for a Christmas miracle.
