America is in the midst of the Great Depression, and the Kamp family is struggling to get by. The older children do their best to take care of the family, but it’s the younger children who struggle most. Now, the Kamp siblings fully expect a Christmas without presents. But when William scrapes together a dollar in coins to use for Christmas gifts, everything begins to change.
Dan Reed (Ted McGinley), mayor of Trapper Falls, Alaska, looks forward to Christmas each year with enthusiasm for all the events, friends, and family that fill the special season. Together with his brother Greg (Brad Stine) they dedicate time away from their adventure tour company to drape the town in Christmas cheer. When Dan's old high school rival Mitch Bright (Daniel Baldwin) returns home after 20 years, Dan is immediately suspicious. Mitch is a highly successful big city lawyer who has never wanted anything to do with Trapper Falls or its people, so why now?
With the children’s constant bickering, pretty packages and a sweet-smelling tree don’t come close to filling the McDonald home with the true spirit of the first Christmas. Then Mom remembers an old tradition of building a soft bed for Baby Jesus one straw at a time. Each time someone secretly does something nice for another family member, he or she gets to add a single straw to the manger. Soon the children's quarreling and negative feelings subside and the homemade crib is overflowing. But for one family member, a required act of kindness becomes more than he can take.
