Amahl, a shepherd, tries to tell his mother that a knock at the door is three kings come to visit them. The kings enter, tell the two peasants they have come to find a king, and show the rich gifts they have brought him. This heartfelt story of love and the battle between right and wrong will be the perfect presentation of the Christmas spirit.
