In Appalachia each Christmas, a boy named Frankie waits beside the tracks for the Christmas Train, which will bring presents to the children who live in coal towns and hollows. Year after year, Frankie hopes that one particular gift — a very special gift — will be tossed to him from that train. It is this enduring hope that will guide him to the true meaning of the season.
