With her world in turmoil, Janet (Lee Remick) feels she is losing so much that’s important… her beloved mother (Angela Lansbury), the family business, maybe even her husband. Janet dreams of simpler times, of Christmas in the idyllic Vermont of her younger days, and of taking her children back to the family home where her parents and spinster aunt (Polly Holliday) would be waiting for them. And they are, in all the warmth of the holiday. But only when even more seems lost, as one her children is in jeopardy, does Janet search for that ‘secret place’ where we all may find what really matters, at Christmas and always.
"Lovely performances by Lee Remick and Angela Lansbury... luminous presence of Polly Holliday... make this a special that merits repeating in seasons to come." -Los Angeles Times
