In the classic Christmas story, few words are devoted to the donkey who carried humble, pregnant Mary to Bethlehem...until now.
That donkey was Yellum. He starts his difficult life as a vulnerable newborn who loses his mother. This orphaned beast of burden is soon seized by ruthless bandits. The evil humans abuse Yellum and use him to fleece unwitting villagers along the endless caravan routes. Eventually, the donkey learns that he must trust no one. As he grows ever stronger and harder, so, too, does his heart.
Things slowly begin to change when Yellum meets Sam the camel and Rags the dog--two kind-hearted creatures who have also been living harsh lives. For the first time, the donkey experiences the power of true friendship and unconditional love. Still, it is a struggle for him to alter his thinking and learn to trust. Thankfully, fate has a few miracles in store to aid in Yellum's evolution, including a divine purpose for this very special donkey as he makes an unforgettable journey to Bethlehem.
