When a baby boy is orphaned in the California Sierras on Christmas Eve, 1850, two curmudgeonly miners agree to raise him. A decade later, the boy's idyllic life is interrupted by the arrival of a meddling aunt, who intends to take him back to Boston for a formal education and a life of success. Inspired by the stories of Bret Harte, THE CHRISTMAS FOUNDLING is a heartwarming holiday tale, with the love of a child at its center and an unlikely romance as its driving force.
