What is John Lewis' Christmas advert about?

In a press release from John Lewis, they explained the premise of the advert and the meaning behind it: "Created in partnership with adam&eveDDB, this year’s ad follows the story of Nathan, a 14 year old boy on his way home from school who spots a flashing light in the distance and chases it to the woods beside his home; it is here that he encounters 14 year old space traveller, Skye and her ship from another galaxy.

"The ice is broken as Nathan adapts his own Christmas jumper by adding a star and twinkly lights - just like Skye’s.

"The pair spark a friendship and we watch as Nathan helps her to discover the magic of her first Christmas.

"We then see Nathan introduce her to some of his favourite Christmas moments, bringing her fairy lights from his family’s tree, amazingly she is able to power them herself with her super powers.

"After a festive meal with family and friends, Nathan brings Skye a mince pie, and she delights at trying this for the first time.

"Together, their friendship grows while watching Christmas films and playing in the snow.

"The time comes when Skye has fixed her ship and must return to her home planet and the pair are to be separated.

"It is a bittersweet, heartwarming moment where Nathan gifts her his Christmas jumper, the same one he was wearing when they first met, and the pair say goodbye just before she boards her ship.

"As Skye leaves, she disappears into the night sky and leaves a twinkling star on a Christmas tree in the distance.Watching all through her eyes reminds us of the magic of a first Christmas, and the moments that matter."
