Santa (T. Mychael Rambo) has teamed up with his elves, Chuck (Patrick O’Brien) and Debbie (Bailey Stender), to grant three magical Christmas wishes to one lucky individual. Despite Erin’s initial skepticism, she finds herself drawn into the “Operation Wish” program, where she makes a fateful wish that changes everything.

Frustrated by the constant merriment around her, Erin impulsively wishes that Christmas had never existed. This rash decision leads to unexpected consequences as she becomes the only person who remembers the beloved holiday. With the help of Sam (Page), a recent blind date, Erin sets out to reintroduce her family and loved ones to the traditions of Christmas that she holds dear.
