The story centers around a boy who has doubts about Santa. His parents feel it is the "end of the magic" for their son. He wants to believe but can't get over his doubts. Just as he is about to drift off to sleep, he is awakened by the Polar Express. The Conductor invites him aboard, taking him on a journey to the north pole to meet Santa and rekindle his faith. The key symbol in this movie is the bell which the boy cannot hear as he has no faith.
Many of us have had great experiences that have given us a renewed faith but once again as the cares of the world set in, we forget to hold on tight to our bell and hear the music. When all hope seems lost, the gift is returned to us by G-d's grace. Santa returning the bell shows how mindful G-d is of each of us individually.
This is my autistic sons favorite movie. One of the very first things he read to me out loud was "Tom Hanks ... Polar Express! " We absolutely adore this movie.
