Storyline

On the Butte Montmartre, on Christmas Eve, three solitary men (a foreign writer, a Black electrician and an old pharmacist) start following a human billboard whose advertisement is topped by an electric star. Their steps lead them to the Hôtel de l'Espérance, where a young illegal immigrant is about to give birth to a baby. At midnight, a little boy is born. Like the Three Wise men, each of the followers of the star offers the newborn a gift. The magic of Christmas has operated once again. Written by Guy Bellinger
