A young boy's faith in the holiday spirit is revived after he makes his way by train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve in this warm-hearted computer-animated tale inspired by Chris Van Allsburg's award-winning children's book. Co-executive producer Tom Hanks also lends his talents to the role of the kindly railroad conductor, who helps the boy find a reason to believe in others -- and himself.
