Overview

A fun and magical Christmas story for all ages—with strong themes of change, family, love, hope, and goodwill toward mankind

A mystical agency exists that is responsible for creating Christmas Carol scenarios with preselected targets every December. Employees of the agency work in either the Past, Present, or Future department and each year they are assigned a person on Earth in need of being "Scrooged," as it were, so that person can reform and embrace the potential for goodness, love, and humanity they have in their hearts. Frost Mason has worked in the Present department for almost a century and what her agency does has started to fade because, while many people commit to reforming after the "life-changing" experience of being Scrooged, human beings rarely change permanently—or do they?
