Plot Synopsis

Based on the O. Henry classic short story. Financially strapped young newlyweds, Della and Jim, are about to spend their first Christmas together. Della, an amateur photographer, longs for a professional zoom lens while Jim longs for an original steering wheel for his antique '55 Chevy Bel Air convertible. When their everyday car is stolen and they exhaust their savings buying a new one, they make the difficult decision not to buy any gifts this Christmas. Determined to get Jim his steering wheel, Della secretly takes a second job while Jim harbors anger about being alone so much of the time. The pair soon begins to drift apart. Days before Christmas, Jim and Della get into a heated argument and decide to call it quits. With their friends' help, the couple reunite on Christmas Eve and discover that Jim has sold his car to buy Della a quality camera lens and Della has sold her camera to buy Jim the steering wheel. Like the original Christmas gifts given so long ago, Jim and Della discover that unselfish love is the greatest of all gifts.
