Lost Christmas is a sad, melancholy and twisted tale of damaged and seemingly unconnected people in the city of Manchester.

'Goose' is a 10 year old boy who on Christmas Eve hides his dad's car keys in the hope that he will not go to work at Christmas. His dad is a fireman.

However his mum drives him to work and both are killed in a car accident.

A year later, Goose is no longer the bright ten year old kid but a feral streetwise kid who is supporting his grandmother through petty crime.

A mysterious man appears out of nowhere. He calls himself Anthony, he has no recollection of who he is or where he came from. He can find things that are lost.

It sounds like a bleak tale for Christmas, particularly one aimed at families but it is a story about redemption and second chances.

Like a ripple on a pond cause by the throwing of a pebble, you find that the various tragedies that befalls the different characters are somehow interconnected.

Maybe Anthony can find some sort of solace for the lost people around him but can he turn back time?

It may lack the usual Christmas sentimentality that these types of films usually have but it also lacks the cynicism. Lost Christmas is realistic enough to connect with today's kids.
