Synopsis

By Philip Grecian. Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story c. 1983 Turner Entertainment Co., distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown, andBob Clark; and on the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd.

Adult Ralph Parker recounts the Christmas he celebrated as a nine year old living with his parents and younger brother in northern Indiana. This particular Christmas was special: his contest-obsessed father won a prize and the never-ending battle with the house furnace. Ralphie faced challenges of his own: clashing with the town bullies and discovering a new relationship with soap. But most memorable was what he wanted more than anything for Christmas: an official Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle, aka a BB gun. Retold with a touch of childhood fantasy, these Christmas stories remind us all why we love the holidays.
