  • Description

    Christmas story. Location of events unknown.

    Christmas; children; medical. Father Christmas pays a visit to a crippled children's home. Shot of a line of injured or disabled children on crutches; standing along a path. Man walks along; holding onto a donkey who pulls a cart full of toys and Father Christmas; a Santa Claus- like figure in England. Next shot of Father Christmas climbing a ladder up to a 2nd story window; taking care not to step on his long robes. Looks like a criminal breaking and entering. Inside a bedroom; he gives a Christmas stocking as a present to a sick boy lying in a bed. Holidays.
