This holiday dramedy peeks behind the scenes of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" as the bickering Spirits overcome their differences to take on their toughest assignment yet: Ebenezer Scrooge.

It's Christmas Eve, 1843 at the Department of Soul Reclamation, and the Spirits have been assigned a doozy of a case this year: the legendary miser Ebenezer Scrooge. The Ghost of Christmas Past, self-appointed team leader, thinks this assignment is her punishment for her last disastrous mission. Christmas Future knows this case is going down in the history books as their best ever - if he can get Past to open up to him, that is. Christmas Present... well, Present is just excited to be in the presence of department legends. This holiday dramedy is the behind-the-scenes story of the Three Spirits of Christmas who must overcome their differences and work together to transform one soul from being 'hard and sharp as flint' to 'as good a man as the good old city knew.'
