The Gathering

For years, hard-driving Adam Thornton devoted himself to business. His family? There would be time for them later. Well, later has arrived for Adam: a diagnosis of only weeks to live. And the family long ago left him, scattering across the continent. So Adam tries to arrange a Christmas reunion – but not even the season of miracles may be miraculous enough to heal long-standing emotional wounds. Edward Asner portrays Adam and Maureen Stapleton is his estranged wife Kate in a beloved holiday classic that won the Emmy as Outstanding Special (1977-1978) and celebrates the tender power of forgiveness and the profound gift of family love.
