Florence and Myrna, residents of a rest home in Pasadena, make up a story to test Myrna's children. Florence has never had a real family Christmas. Myrna had years of storybook Christmases with her five children who live in Idaho, but now her health needs have brought her to a warmer climate. Florence fantasizes that a family would come along and take her in for Christmas, but of course no family would put themselves out that way. Yes, the would, says Myrna, her children would she taught them to be caring in just that way. "Would not," says Florence. "Would too," says Myrna. "Then lets find out." And thus is born Genevieve, a fictitious little old lady in a rest home near to Myrna's children in Idaho Falls. If one of them will agree to take in Genevieve, Florence's dream will as good as come true she will really believe in Christmas then. Myrna calls her children one by one, and one by one they turn her down. Both women are desolate. In a final surprise scene that brings laughter and tears, the dreams of all concerned come true in a real family Christmas. This story is based on the best selling book of the same name.
