Top of page

During the Christmas holiday season, three young children discover that their eccentric old neighbour, Mr. Horner, whom they always considered an ogre and a scrooge, does have a heart after all; the old man discovers the kids are not the hooligans he thought they were. Based on a short story by Canadian author David Walker, it is a funny, warm and touching drama about neighbours, friendship, generosity and the joy of Christmas.

1984, 23 min 52 s
