What happens to a small town Christmas pageant when the regular director breaks her leg? A family of six juvenile delinquent children hear that they can get free refreshments at the church and end up with all the lead roles because all of the other children are afraid of them? Imagine six children who know nothing of the Christmas story whose regular activities include smoking cigars, setting things on fire, stealing lunches and general bullying get cast as Mary, Joseph, wise men and angels. Despite, or maybe because of, their short comings it turns out to be the best Christmas pageant ever and gives us a different perspective on the Christmas story.
