It's almost time for Christmas, and Maria is traveling with her mother and younger brother, Juan, to visit their grandmother on the border of California and Mexico.

For the few minutes they can share together along the fence, Maria and her brother plan to exchange stories and Christmas gifts with the grandmother they haven't seen in years.  But when Juan's gift is too big to fit through the slats in the fence, Maria has a brilliant idea. 

Here is a heartwarming tale of families and the miracle of love.
