Academy Award nominees Hume Cronyn and James Earl Jones star in this warmhearted and whimsical Yuletide tale about the beloved traditions of the holiday. Facing his first Christmas as a widower, Grandpa Nicholas (Jones) tells his grandson all about St. Nick (Cronyn), the Christian bishop who traveled the world performing small miracles.  Pete, a cook who takes a terrible risk when St. Nick is arrested as a spy by the Spanish government, freeing him so that he can continue to deliver his message of brotherhood.  Pete’s dream is to see the world, so he becomes St. Nick’s assistant, and when they learn that children are going to the New World, Santa decides they must follow, bringing along the Old World tradition of gift-giving and making some new traditions along the way.
