A fiction film made by members of the Albany Cine Club about a girl who finds that her Christmas present doesn't live up to her dreams. The film has an accompanying music track.


On Christmas Eve a mother and father take their daughter to look at the shop window displays. Whilst looking at a display of toys, the girl dreams that she enters the shop where she is overwhelmed by an array of wonderful cuddly toys and dolls. Back at home she says a prayer before bedtime. In the morning she wakes to find her Christmas present at the foot of her bed - she cries with sadness as she opens the package to find an unwanted doll.
