Description

John and his mom are leaving their home in a small mining town first thing in the morning. When John wakes up before dawn to find a snow-covered wonderland outside his window, he knows just how to say goodbye to all his friends on Griffith Street. As he makes his way down the softly lit street, thinking of all the children and grown-ups he cares about, he gathers his community around him one last time.
