On the night before Christmas, a man will commit a desperate act. A tale about morality and the holiday season, by Slamdance alumni director DC Kasundra and cinematographer Tom Krymkowski, with an original composition of “Carol of the Bells” by Gene Hodsdon.
This film challenges our notions of right and wrong. Is it always so cut and dry, black and white? Or are there gray areas that are harder to define?
2. A Second Chance At Christmas
It’s all too easy to forget the real gifts of the holidays, building our lives around the meaningless and seeking joy in the pointless. When an accidental meeting between people from worlds apart leads to choices, they receive the gift of opportunity – to stand fast or take a chance.
A SECOND CHANCE AT CHRISTMAS.
A gift from the heart is the best gift of all.
