Visited by three strangers on the eve before Christmas, Ebenezer Scrooge sees his penny pinching ways revealed in all their terrible glory: from brushes with the past, to enlightenment in the present and dreaded visions of the future. Will Scrooge repent and throw turkey to the wind, or will he hold on to his purse strings, forever doomed like his poor dead friend Marley?
