It's 1945, almost Christmas, and Tommy - a.k.a. The Shadow - is on a mission to find out who beat up his best friend Sammy's father. Aunt Dottie says whoever beat up Mr. Rosenberg doesn't like Jewish people. Tommy lives in a rough, multiethnic neighborhood in Lowertown, Ottawa, where World War II has left its mark. When Sammy moves away after the assault, Tommy begins to see Angel Square through new eyes. In his quest to uncover the guilty party, Tommy learns more abvout the prejudices that define Angel Square and much of the world in postwar era. The closer Tommy gets to the culprit who attacked Sammy's dad, the more he begins to appreciate peace, tolerance, and the spirit of the Christmas season.
