SYNOPSIS
What would happen if Santa Claus were to walk among us? When a white-bearded gentleman claiming to be "the real Santa Claus" emerges in New York city, he spreads a wave of love throughout the city, fosters camaraderie between rival department stores Macy's and Bloomingdales, and convinces a single mother, her skeptical young daughter and the entire state of New York that Santa Claus is no myth. The whole family will love this funny, poignant and faithful adaptation of the classic 1947 film.
