Christmas joy is a matter of perspective. For some, it?s the happiest time of the year. For others, not so much.

Twenty-nine-year-old Mick, the son of crack addicts, isn?t exactly a dyed-in-the-wool Scrooge. Mick?s been on his own from childhood. As a teen, he even lived in a shelter, where for a short time he had a boyfriend.

After the boyfriend left, Mick squatted in the historic Orpheum Theater. While living there as its self-appointed custodian, Mick has watched others celebrate the holidays from a distance, never able to share in their merriment.

Only his Technicolor dreams enliven his dull, clandestine life until one day the world around him begins to change.

Mick is surprised when a man named Jim buys the Orpheum and plans to restore it. Something about Jim rekindles Mick?s longing for a better life and a little holiday magic for himself.

Can Jim give Mick the hope he needs to accept his happily ever after?
