HEART OF CHRISTMAS: The Secret History Of The Littlest Wiseman

"HEART OF CHRISTMAS: The Secret History of The Littlest Wiseman" revolves around the origins of "The Littlest Wiseman" annual nativity play at the Scott Theater in Fort Worth, Texas. The documentary chronicles the beginnings of the TLW production in Fort Worth as well as the great impact benefactors Howard and Mary D. Walsh (both now deceased) had in bringing it to Scott Theatre. The Walshes affected many young lives for the better with their charitable works. Many of those youngsters, now adults, share those memories during this film.
