How do you save a rural mall from being abandoned and forgotten?
Step 1: Overhaul Christmas village.
Step 2: Get the business owners on board.
Step 3: Hire the best Santa the Oak Grove Mall has ever seen.
Candace Kane has one goal this holiday season. To save Christmas.
Nick Frost just needs a job, a stiff drink, and to forget how he lost his livelihood, his friends, and most of his money in less than a day.
He’s not exactly happy about filling in as Santa Claus at the Oak Grove Mall back in his hometown of Hillcrest, Wisconsin. Candace isn’t thrilled about it either but she needs to get Nick on board if she wants to keep the mall from closing and keep her new job.
