Synopsis

Christmas Eve, 1823. Things aren’t looking good for Clem Moore, a hardworking newspaper writer at the New York Chronicle. His wife needs an expensive operation in order to survive – but instead of advancing him the money, Clem’s boss gives him an impossible assignment: to write the best Santa Claus story ever. Clem, who considers Santa Claus a ridiculous idea, puts aside his cynicism for one moment and wishes on the Christmas Star. What follows is a night of magic that not only changes Clem’s life forever, but how the whole world celebrates Christmas.
