Two young friends discover an unexpected and unshakeable bond as they grow from boyhood to manhood in the shadow of racism in southern Texas in the 1960s. The rural Texas town of Canaan in the early 1960s is home to a pair of ten-year-old classmates. But the relationship between poor white farm boy DJ Burton and Rodney Freeman, a young black aspiring writer, is a contentious one. When their differences escalate into a fight, DJs widowed father, Daniel, and Rodneys grandmother and guardian, Eunice, conspire not to punish the boys but to bring them together, forcing them to get along. When Eunice dies, Daniel takes Rodney in. Adjusting to DJs younger siblings isnt easy, yet as Christmas arrives, this newly blended family realizes that even in tough times they can at least give each other the gift of hope for the holidays. But life in Canaan is lived under the shadow of the Civil Rights movement and a racially charged atmosphere that threatens everything Rodney and Daniel and his family have been fighting for. Testing them even further is the arrival of Rodneys estranged mother, who is now determined to reclaim her son. Whatever happens, all that has formed between them is a family bond that will never be broken.
