Director: Charles Poekel
Noel returns to New York City hoping to put the past year behind him. Heartbroken, he spends the holidays working the night shift at a sidewalk Christmas tree lot and living in a trailer, not getting much sleep. He is bad-tempered and self-destructive until one strange night, when he comes to the aid of a mysterious woman. She and a free-flowing group of colorful customers rescue him from despair. Thoughtful and delicate, the film follows Noel on his lonesome search for hope and companionship while observing the holiday season from a new and unconventional perspective.
