It is the Christmas of 1794. The townspeople are downhearted because Napoleon has declared Christian worship against the law. Determined to celebrate Christmas, eight-year-old Jacques sculpts his own manger scene made of clay. As he meets neighbors along his travels, he depicts them in his Nativity set. Jacques develops a friendship with a Revolutionary soldier, giving him gifts, and teaching him about the Christ Child.
