Christmas time at the Kentucky home of George and Denise Barnett, the decorations are up and the kids are smiling, but all is not well. George is worried about his friend Don Ford while choir director Denise is fretting over the Christmas Eve concert at their church. Meanwhile, George's brother Allen is working as a studio guitarist in Los Angeles. Allen has promised to come back to Kentucky for months – a promise that has been left unfulfilled. George learns that Don Ford is worried about his daughter Celia, a struggling actress in Hollywood – and George formulates a plan. Allen drives home and brings Celia with him. Turns out that's easier said than done. But just when George and Denise think they have everything in order, Denise's parents decide to pay a visit for the holidays. George finds out that Don Ford doesn't appreciate him meddling and the church choir loses its soloist for the concert. Celia, a fine singer, may be the answer to the choir soloist problem but conflicts arise on Christmas Eve that can only be solved by forgiveness.
