Plot: A series of Christmas stories are told from various perspectives in this comedy, dramatic, and romantic movie. These stories exhibit the importance of love, friendship, family, hope, and acceptance.
They all meet up in the end, with new friendships and it is left ambiguous to the audience what happens.
Story 1: Sam Marcus, a 23 year old college student suffering from disinterest with work and socializing, reunites with his cousin, Lily, whom he hasn't seen since childhood, and may be the only key to improving his self-image and connection with the friends and family members around him.
Story 2: Sean O'Conner, a young 22 year old man suffering from severe depression and loneliness runs into a former victim he bullied back in high school, tall and beautiful down to earth 24 year old Zoey Boswell, who works as a waitress in a cafe. Realizing what he has done in the past (acting like a complete bully), Sean takes his chances with the girl, signifying a spark between the two will display true love.
Story 3: Three best friends, Roxanne (A black-haired British woman), Stacy (clumsy blonde but witty), and Rachel (A hot Australian party animal) run into some old friends (athletic Bradley, British author George, and former football player Daniel) from college that reconnect with them to celebrate the happy holidays. But, one of the friends has a secret that they're not willing to share that will test their friendships.
Story 4: Joshua Reese, a mid to late 20's man has his own family troubles - he can't get along with his elder father who is disappointed in his son's decision to pursue business instead of becoming a police officer, and Joshua's sister is falling in love with Sam Marcus (protagonist from Story 1). But, while Joshua is struggling with his job as an investor, he tries to accept that no matter what happens with him, family is more important than anything.
MPAA: Rated PG-13 for sensual humor, a scene of violence, thematic elements, partying, brief nudity, sexuality, and strong language.
