SYNOPSIS

The Alden children have just been orphaned. Knowing they will go to different foster homes, they escape to the woods and make their home in an abandoned boxcar. But someone is desperate to find them. Based on the popular children’s novel, THE BOXCAR CHILDREN is a powerful story teaching us that home can be anywhere as long as you have your family by your side.
