Starring: Billy Dee Williams, Maria Schell, Fay Hauser, Hanna Landy and Bob Hastings. Written by William E. Barrett, John McGreevey, and Ralph Nelson. Directed by Ralph Nelson.
Homer Smith (Billy Dee Williams) returns to the chapel which, years before, he helped to build to find that the nuns have taken in a group of homeless/unwanted/runaway children. Once again, he is inspired by the nuns' faith and selfless devotion, and this time he builds an orphanage and a little school for the children.
Originally made for television as a sequel to the classic Lilies of the Field, this surprisingly rich and moving holiday film concerns an ex-soldier turned handyman (Billy Dee Williams) who returns to the Arizona chapel he built earlier.
