A down-on-his-luck elf must deliver a lump of coal on Christmas Eve to earn his way back into Santa’s good books but when an eight-year old girl, who’s definitely on the naughty list, catches him in the act the elf must find a way to escape by any means necessary.
Writer/director/producer: Alex Hatz
