Martha Evans, an attractive 28 year old shows the wear of years of working double shifts at minimum wage. Martha is close to despair when her ‘never-do-well’ husband abandons her a few days before Christmas, leaving her homeless and destitute.

With her two young daughters and stepson in tow, Martha travels cross-country looking for work, finally landing a job as a late-shift waitress at a small town diner. Still, with her car broken down and the bills piling up as fast as her troubles, it looks like it’s going to be a very bleak Christmas for the Evans family. In a desperate cry for help, Martha reaches to higher power…and her prayer seems to work a small miracle.

Unbeknownst to her, the sympathetic townsfolk and a concerned new admirer have been working behind the scenes to make her season bright. The kindness of strangers ultimately renews Martha’s faith, not only in humanity but also in the God who answered her prayer. The owner of the local diner, an attractive, no-nonsense woman in her mid to late 60s takes pity on Martha and her kids. As their bond builds, the two find unexpected comfort in the values of true friendship. Could blowing the dust off the beloved old recipe for home-made root beer be the answer to their prayers?...
