A family Christmas movie with a powerful message: 'We can't always have what we wish for, but we can be content with what we have.'
Every year before the Christmas break, the students in Olivia Mead's class present 'My Impossible Christmas Wish' papers, but this year, something unusual is happening - the wishes are coming true! Olivia takes note, because she has been wishing for a long time that her single mum could find the right person, a man Olivia could call 'Dad'. Olivia is soon convinced the answers are linked to the
abandoned house across the street - known throughout the school as the 'wishing house' - when she sees a bright glow and a mysterious woman at the window. When she sets out to prove it's an angel, Olivia creates a stir that puts her at odds with the property owner, Dr Nathan Davis, a cynical man who has beaten down by the tragic events in his life.
What Olivia discovers is a reclusive and mysterious inhabitant of the house, Elsie Waybright. Elsie is no angel, and she has plenty of secrets to keep, but she does have the answer to how the Christmas wishes came true.
