A ship. A Storm. And a Christmas Story of Heroic Proportions.

In November 1912, a man known as "Captain Santa" stood at the helm of The Christmas Tree Ship. It was transporting Christmas trees from Upper Michigan to the Chicago area's underprivileged and wealthy alike when it encountered a violent storm on Lake Michigan. Now, on a mission to keep her family's legacy alive, his widow has to come to terms with the lake and all it represents to her. But can she do it? Daughter Elsie believes together they can, and has a surprise in store for her mother that will change everything.

Don't miss this epic, heart-warming, inspirational tale, inspired by a true story that will remind us all of the importance of tradition, kindness, and the joy of Christmas.
