— Chance Grover, the Hobo
A Hobo's Christmas is a 1987 TV movie, originally produced for and aired on CBS in December 6, 1987.
Chance Grovner, a hobo, decides it's time to go home. Drifting from place to place, Chance finds himself in his hometown of Salt Lake City at Christmas time. Here he hopes to close old wounds and be reunited with, Charlie, his unforgiving son, and get to know the grandchildren he has never met. Charlie, still resenting the fact that Chance ran out on his family 25 years earlier, gives his father only one day with his grandkids; after that, he's expected to leave and never come back. All the while Chance' friends warn him that his son and the past are memories that are best left alone, and should leave, but he has to find out for himself.
