Storyline

Bah! Humbug! Susan Stone is definitely what you'd call a modern-day scrooge. She is a young, jaded book editor who is consumed with self-doubt and has lost the passion and drive that defined her childhood persona. On the verge of losing her job and being completely on the "outs" with her family, Susan has nearly given up on happiness. Out of nowhere, a cheerful, carefree seven-year-old girl named Suzie awaits Susan back at her apartment. It turns out that little Suzie is the embodiment of Susan's inner child, she is Susan as she once was years ago. Suzie has come to help the adult Susan rediscover and recapture the love of life that she's lost. Written by DANIEL

A familiar Christmas story with a 90s twist.
15 December 1999 | by drama-3See all my reviews

The story is a familiar one: A person who use to love Christmas and was a nice person, but through the years has become a person who hates Christmas and is a grumpy/mean person. This person is transformed to their old self again by something "out of the ordinary" appearing to them so that they and the people in their life can enjoy Christmas again.

I liked the familiarity of the story as well as the twist.
