The story centers on a young black teen from Baltimore, who is sent to Harlem by his mother to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged grandparents. The boy then learns the real meaning of faith and family when his grandfather delivers a Christmas Eve sermon. The film includes a stylized, dream-sequence retelling of the classic Nativity story.
Mary J. Blige, Tyrese Gibson, Luke James, and Nas round out the cast. Terence Blanchard is the film score's composer, while Raphael Saadiq wrote music for it.
