Christmas in the City

Synopsis: With the threat of having to close her father's candy store, Wendy and her six-year-old daughter Grace travel to the big city in hopes of making extra holiday cash to save their family store. When she's offered a job in the toy department of Wolman's, the city's biggest department store, Wendy can't wait! Her excitement doesn't last long when the store's new corporate fixer, Teanna, progressively destroys the Christmas spirit throughout the store, replacing Santa with hunky male underwear models surrounded by elfin "babes." What no one is aware of is that Teanna has in fact sacked the real Santa. Wendy reaches out to the old man, but it seems even he is giving up hope. With her daughter losing faith in the holiday, Wendy realizes the true meaning of Christmas needs to return to Wolman's before it is too late.

more money.

- Well, the store I work at

is hiring for the holidays.

- Okay, that's amazing.

So give me your address,

and we'll just take the bus?

- Oh, I can't believe it.

I'm just so excited.

You're coming to the city!

- Me too.

Hey, Angie, congratulations

again on your show.

- Aw, thank you, sweetie.

I'll see you soon.

- Okay. bye.

- Bye.

I'll go, dad,

and when I get back,

I promise I'll have the money

to save the store.

- There's one, mom.

- Good.

- Off-duty, lady. Sorry.

- Mommy, look. There's Santa.

- Oh, yeah. Here you go. Oh!

Here you go. Sorry. Come on.

- Merry Christmas.

340. we did it.

What do you want?

- Excuse me. Sorry... oh!

- There you are!

I heard the buzzer but my

entry buzzer's been broken.

- Hi.

- look at you, Grace.

- Angie!

- you're so big!

Come in, come in, come in.

Get you warm.

I got that. I'll take that.

With so many cabs in the city,

you'd think it'd be easy

to catch one,

but it's almost like

they ignore you.

Sometimes I've practically had

to throw myself

in front of one.

All right, here we are.

Home sweet home.

- Ooh...

- isn't it great.

It's so much bigger

than my last apartment.

- Wow, I love it.

- And it has a bath,

not just a shower.

- Great.

- Where's your Christmas tree?

- Oh, I don't have one.

Trying to preserve

the environment.

- No tree?

- You two will shack up

- in the bedroom.

- Hooray!

- Wait, no, we can't take

your bedroom.

- Well, I just bought

this pull-out couch,

and I have been dying

to try it out,

- so I insist.

- Are you sure?

'Cause we don't want

to put you out.

- I am so thrilled to have

someone from back home!

And the best part is

you get to see me

in my new musical.

- Ooh.

- you're gonna come, right?

- Of course we're coming.
