Wendy Carroll (Ashley Williams) and her six-year-old daughter Grace (Kylie Price) live in a small town where Christmas is everywhere. She gets a foreclosure notice three weeks before Christmas on her father's candy store which she has been running for the last five years. To make some extra money in order to save the candy store, Wendy and Grace travel to the big city, where they stay with Wendy's friend Angie from back home who just got a major part in a play. Angie works at Wolman's - the city's largest department store - where she takes Wendy to apply for a temp job. While waiting for Angie to check in, Wendy meets Tom, who manages the store and offers her a job in the toy department. She thinks the store is amazing, with all the Christmas holiday cheer; unfortunately her excitement doesn't last long when the store's manager, Teanna (Ashanti), destroys the Christmas spirit throughout the store and replaces Santa (Michael Durrell) with a hunky male underwear model surrounded by elfin "babes."
What Teanna doesn't know is that she has in fact sacked the real Santa. Unaware of his real "Santa" status, Wendy reaches out to the old man, but it seems even he has given up hope. With her daughter losing faith in the holiday, Wendy realizes she must bring the true meaning of Christmas back to Wolman's before it is too late.
