When four strangers find themselves sitting together at a restaurant on Christmas, it’s the last place any of them want to be. With families in chaos and disappointment at every turn they share their dreams and struggles. As they open up to each other, they discover something they were all missing. In this offbeat and heartwarming comedy about peace and adventure, the special of the day is family.

Once upon a time, there was a gifted shoemaker and his wife. Hard times hit their village and the generous shoemaker gave away his last pair of shoes to someone in need. Left with just a few scraps of leather, the couple goes to bed uncertain of their future. Overnight, as if by magic, their luck turns when a mysterious pair of shoes appears on their counter. But if the shoemaker didn’t make the shoes, who did? Adapted from Grimm’s fairytales, Shoemaker’s Christmas is a humbly comedic reminder that spreading kindness and generosity is worth more than gold.
