Businessman Ebenezer Scrooge has a reputation for being a miser. Not only does he overwork and underpay his employees like clerk Bob Cratchit whose son, Tiny Tim, is crippled and close to death, but for him, Christmas is a “humbug”. He prefers to avoid spending time with his family and wants nothing to do with his nephew, Fred, whose birth cost Scrooge the life of his sister.
On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the chained and tormented ghost of his business partner, Jacob Marley. He is then visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come. Transported to each of these worlds, Scrooge witnesses what a lifetime of fear and selfishness has led to and sees with fresh eyes the lonely life he has built for himself. The ghosts offer him one last chance to change his ways and save himself from the grim fate that befell his friend Marley. Can Ebenezer be saved before it’s too late?
