Storyline

Geraldine and her two daughters, Livvie and Angeline, are living rough on the streets on London. When their van blows up, they must find an alternative place to stay. At first, they live in temporary housing, but the conditions are unbearable. Geraldine reacts quickly and the family decides to take up residence in Scottley's, the best department store in London. They must keep it a secret from doorman Brian (whom the girls call Mr. Whiskers), and a couple of bumbling thieves who want to rob the store safe of its jewels.

Set in a plush department store only days before Christmas, a single mother(Dervla Kirwan) and her two daughters(Holly and Elizabeth Earl), made homeless when their caravan explodes, go and live in Scottley's, the best store in London. A suspicious door-keeper(Peter Capaldi) keeps an eye over them. In Santa's grotto, Santa(Ricky Tomlinson) and his Elf(Sean Hughes) are planning a robbery of Mr Scottley's jewels. Excellent performances alround make it entertaining for everyone. But the best performance was by Elizabeth Earl, her future in acting at the highest level is assured.
