The Angel Doll is a Christmas story told through the eyes of two young boys living in a North Carolina manufacturing town during the 1950s. Jerry is a quiet 10-year-old who enjoys all the advantages of a middle-class lifestyle, while his best friend Whitey lives in poverty with his mother and alling four-year-old sister Sandy.
Whitey is devoted to his sister and her fondness for angels, making sure to regularly read to her from her favorite book, The Littlest Angel. But as Whitey saves up money from his daily newspaper route to buy Sandy a real angel doll for Christmas, he discovers there are no such dolls for sale in their small east coast town.
Armed with equal amounts of will power and single-winded determination, Jerry and Whitey set out on a journey to find the perfect Christmas gift for Sandy. Along the way, they overcome fear, prejudice and theft as they learn the true meaning of the holiday spirit. Rated PG. Approx. 93 minutes.
