In this new version of A Christmas Carol, Scrooge's tale of redemption and transformation is turned completely on its head. Mrs. Bob Cratchit, a previously minor character in the famous Dickens tale, takes center stage this year! No longer loving and long suffering, Mrs. Bob is in a rage: She's sick of the goody-goody crippled Tiny Tim, she hates her twenty other children, and she wants to get drunk and jump off London Bridge! To make matters worse, the Ghost of Christmas Past’s magic is malfunctioning, and not only do she and Scrooge keep ending up in the present at the Cratchit’s pathetic dwelling on Christmas Eve, but somehow the plots of Oliver Twist, The Gift of the Magi, and It’s a Wonderful Life all get caught up in the snow flurry of Holiday hilarity.
