Wolf Creek is known for its annual Christmas festivities, especially its big performance of Twas the Night Before Christmas, but a new cynical manager, and lots of mishaps threaten to end this beloved tradition. Samantha (Nola Martin) is in charge of the show and every other area of her life, which threatens to upend her romance with Austin (Tim Rozon), who is struggling with a big decision that adds even more tension to their relationship. When Austin is injured and goes missing Samantha must choose between her show and him.
Sam’s perky sister Sunny (Madeline Leon) helps save the day with her fumbling efforts to fill in, adding some comedic relief that lightens the chaos ensuing, when the star of the show runs away, and cost of production brings things to a halt. Sunny’s learns, as she tries to reach the kids who are struggling to perform, and Terry (Ish Morris), the scrooge of the festivities, that she can rely on her strongest assets to save the day — the lovable animals from the local rescue mission, which win hearts and help relieve nervousness.
It is endearing to see the townspeople come together to support one another and help carry on the importance of the spirit of Christmas by pitching in to ensure that everyone’s dreams come true, even the young assistant Annie (Ava Augustin), who desperately misses her father.
When these main characters work to understand and reconcile with one another, they make discoveries about themselves and others that promise to last beyond Christmas to a lifetime.
