A young minister brings electricity to an English village during the late 20th Century, threatening a local tradition involving a candle capable of delivering Christmas miracles. According to local legend, an angel visits the quaint hamlet of Gladbury every 25 years, touching a candle produced by the local candlemaker, and giving one lucky family a Christmas miracle. Now the year is 1890, and as Christmas approaches, youthful minster David Richmond (Hans Matheson) arrives in Gladbury convinced that the locals will embrace the convenience of electricity with open arms. Meanwhile, the tempestuous candlemaker sees electricity as a direct threat to his livelihood, and plots to ensure that the legend is preserved. When the one blessed candle disappears, however, the citizens of this quaint hamlet have a Christmas like none ever before. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
