Everyone, especially children, knows that the holiday season is a time for miracles. However, six-year-old Susan Walker (Mara Wilson) has doubts about childhood’s most enduring miracle…Santa Claus. This holiday season, Susan is going to receive the most precious gift of all: something to believe in. And she’s about to discover that miracles do occur…The story relates the arrival of one Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough), a department store Santa who believes he’s the genuine article, and who subsequently turns a skeptical child’s world upside-down. When Kris is put on trial to prove he’s Santa, the youngster — and everyone around her — learns the true meaning of faith, the importance of family… and that even today, we all need something to believe in.
