Roland Hope had not learned a damn thing all year.
Now, the week before Christmas, his world as a high-powered labour lawyer negotiator is falling apart.
His wife Jodi wants a divorce. His homeless, alcoholic father shows up unexpectedly, with a load of troubles. And the killer instinct skills he used to build a remarkable career have failed him for the first time ever.
In this contemporary Christmas story, Roland Hope turns to an unlikely source of inspiration – an old red Fender Stratocaster guitar gifted to him by his father.
It is the same guitar Karl Hope used to write three smash hit singles, propelling him to a life of fame as a touring musician.
But life on the road nearly destroyed him and his family, left him a widow and estranged from his oldest son.
Facing the prospect of the bleakest Christmas of his life, Rolland discovers the old Stratocaster still has some tricks left in it, as he rekindles the musical dreams he thought had long ago died inside him.
In the spirit of It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol, this story of one man’s musical salvation will inspire your faith in the magic of the most special season of the year.
