Released on DVD and Digital Download at the beginning of this month from Image Entertainment, a division of RLJ Entertainment,  So This is Christmas (2013) is the introspective story of 18 year-old Ashley, the product of a dysfunctional familywho is at the crossroads of going down the wrong or right road of life.

Then, through fate that comes in the form of a repairman who is working on her family's house, she is inspired to volunteer to help out with a Christmas play involving kids in need. What ensues changes her life as Ashley discovers how community service not only paves the way to a better life for the underprivileged children she is helping, but also causes her to feel a sense of purpose and helps mend her chaotic family homelife in the process.

Christmas Balls on Tree,
So This is Christmas has a timeless message that teens and young adults can relate to: giving of oneself to someone less fortunate is the greatest gift you can give to another and to yourself. In addition to showing youth the impact community service can have on the needy, especially during the holidays, the film may also encourage better relationships within young viewers' own families, especially with parents. 

The drama stars some recognizeable names: Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight) and in the role of Ashley, young actress Lexi Ainsworth from the soap General Hospital. Win a run time of 114 minutes, the DVD is unrated and carries a suggested retail price of $27.97.

Christmas dinner for the homeless,
