When Todd, a developmentally-challenged 20 year-old with an affinity for animals, hears that the animal shelter is looking for families to foster a dog for Christmas, he’s eager to sign up. But Todd’s father George says “no adoptions” — even temporary ones — claiming he wants to protect Todd from disappointment. Mary Ann, Todd’s mother, knows better. Something else is troubling George, something he doesn’t want to face. With Mary Ann’s support, Todd’s persistence pays off. He chooses a friendly yellow lab and names him “Christmas.” Bringing Christmas home proves to be a life-changing event for the whole family, allowing Todd to show that he can care for the dog on his own, and inspiring George to love a new member of the family.
