Two thousand years ago in Bethlehem, a young homeless boy named Daniel finds shelter in a stable and witnesses the birth of the Savior. Wanting to present the child with something, he gives the baby his only possession-a silver ring he wears on a piece of twine around his neck-a gift from his dying mother. But Daniel's life remains difficult and at times desperate, living on the fringe of society until, in his darkest and loneliest moment, he again meets the Savior.
