Christmas is coming to Hohman, Indiana, and all nine-year-old Ralphie wants for Christmas is the legendary official Red Ryder 200-Shot Carbine Action Range Model Air Rifle with a compass and this thing which tells time built right into the stock. The problem is that every adult in his life, beginning with his mother, is afraid he’ll shoot his eye out with it. Ralphie’s attempts to persuade Santa and his parents that he should get the Red Ryder gun form the basis for this heartwarming and nostalgic look at growing up in a small town in America in 1938.
