    Howard Hartwell has been a Santa at the downtown department store for a long time. This year, however, has taken a toll on him and he decides to find his Christmas cheer in a bottle. He’s fired. Sitting in the seedy big city alley, at the back door of the store on Christmas Eve, some unexpected magic starts to happen through which he discovers the real meaning of Christmas.
