The story of a Greenbrier County, West Virginia, family in which a grandfather and his granddaughter share a special ability -- they call it a gift -- that enables them to briefly witness each year a miraculous gathering in the sky. What they see begins at precisely one minute past Christmas and fills them with as much relief as it does wonder. But they worry that the "gift" -- which they cannot reveal to anyone else -- will die with them because it has been passed to no other relative for forty-four years.
