Depression Era Drama Spotlights One Woman�s Dreams for Her Family Despite Hardship and Opposition

Academy Award� winner Shirley Jones, two-time daytime Emmy� Award nominee and �All My Children� star Sydney Penny, Emmy� nominee Tom Bosley, and star of stage, film and television, Jason Gedrick pool their considerable talents in �Hidden Places,� a powerful drama about a young widow who finds a guardian angel in the form of a hobo who comes to her rural community looking for work. The Hallmark Channel Original movie premieres Saturday, January 28, (9/8c).

In �Hidden Places,� Sydney Penny portrays Eliza Wyatt, a sweet and attractive widow and mother of two in her mid 30�s. Life on the farm with her children and her harsh father-in-law, Frank, has become extremely difficult due to the Great Depression. While the small family struggles to bring in the orange crop, Frank suffers a fatal heart attack, leaving the family one payment away from bank foreclosure.

Eliza�s Aunt Batty (Shirley Jones), Frank�s sister, arrives to help her brother�s daughter-in-law with the farm and the children. Her positive attitude and faith bolster the family during these hard times. However, Eliza believes that it will take a guardian angel to help her hold on to the only home she has ever really known.

That guardian angel arrives in the form of Gabe Harper (Jason Gedrick), a down- on-his-luck hobo looking for food and shelter in exchange for work. With a vulnerable heart, Eliza is drawn to Gabe�s kind and helpful spirit but his secretive ways cause Eliza to distrust Gabe�s motives, fearing that he may jeopardize what little stability the family has.

With the help and support of Aunt Batty, Eliza begins to trust and understand Gabe.

�Hidden Places� is a Hallmark Entertainment presentation of an Alpine Medien Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions. Robert Halmi, Jr., and Larry Levinson are Executive Producers.
