Synopsis

A comedy centered on Jake Wilkinson, a self-absorbed prep school student, who, just days before Christmas awakens to find himself stranded in the middle of a California desert--wearing a Santa suit and a white beard glued to his face. The butt of a payback by the football team who thinks he double-crossed them by not providing the correct answers to a finals test, Jake has to finds a way to get to New York by 6:00p.m. on Christmas Eve--and catch up with his girlfriend Allie who is on the road with the school stud Eddie--or risk forfeiting the Porche his father promised if he willing comes home for the holidays. As Jake desperately hitchhikes his way east, everyone he meets unwittingly sets into motion a comedy of errors as they look to Santa for help and advice.
