At 17 years old, Angelica suffers from Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and receives regular chemotherapy as treatment. As her parents are struggling with cancelled health insurance and her declining health, they find out that Angelica's life depends on a bone marrow transplant. The search for a matching donor is exceedingly difficult, yet because she needs a multiracial donor, the search becomes nearly impossible. Despite her severe condition, she finds friendship and love in 18 year old homeless runaway Sean. Together they witness a miracle proving that God works in mysterious ways. In this heartwarming Christmas film, Angelica will ultimately experience a love deeper than she could have ever expected.
Yale Productions' Jordan Yale Levine will be producing the film alongside FilmPool's Kenny Lofton (former MLB all-star), Rudy Luna, and Brenton Earley. Luna who wrote the screenplay, will also be directing. Yale Productions LLC is an independent feature film company. FilmPool is a post-production/production facility.
