Every year, widower Christy Byrne has traveled from Nova Scotia with his children to sell their homegrown Christmas trees in New York City. This year, while Christy sells his trees, he'll try to find Danny, his 17-year old son who ran away a year ago. Catherine lives in the same New York neighborhood and doesn't celebrate Christmas since her husband died. Every year Christy has tried to sell her a tree, but Catherine politely refuses.
