Plot Summary

  • Christmas Eve in New York, and the lonely divorced publisher, Rose Collins, needs a miracle to improve the health of her mother, interned in a hospital with Alzheimers. She feels sorry for another patient and meets his visitor. Meanwhile, Nina Vasquez breaks her engagement with her beloved fiancé Mike due to his suffocating jealousy, but misses him. Mike is stalked by a stranger, bartender Artie Venzuela. The poor Jules arranges to spend Christmas Eve in the hospital, where he spent the best Christmas of his life when he was a teenager. The lives of some of these characters cross with others along the night.

  • New York cop Mike Riley and his suspicious partner Dennis are amused to see old waiter Artie Venzuela spoil him. But Artie isn't gay, he 'stalks' Mike as presumed reincarnation of his late wife, desperate for closure, while unable to connect with his own adult son. Mike's Latino fiancée Nina Vasquez dumps him for suffocating jealousy, mainly over-protective (professionally deformed) misunderstandings, but neither can miss the other. Quiet block neighbor Jules Calvert can't handle the holidays and craves the only humanly warm Christmas he ever spent, in hospital, enough to have his arm broken just hoping for a reenactment. Terminal priest Charlie Boyd interacts as patient and helpful spirit with social cripple Rose Collins, who can't cope with life, let alone care for her apathetic Alzheimer-patient ma.
