Full synopsis

It's Christmas Eve, and Lee and Lucy face a possible yuletide disaster when they discover the perfect present they have bought for their children has already been gifted to them by their grandparents, Geoffrey and Wendy. Lee is forced to rush out at the last minute in search of a suitable substitute. But, with all the local shops closing their doors for the festive period, the race is on for Lee to avoid the ultimate parenting fail on Christmas morning and disappoint his three excited children.

With Lee's lovably feckless father Frank and uptight neighbours Toby and Anna dropping in to join in the madness and mayhem, it's guaranteed to be a family Christmas to remember.
