It is Christmas Eve, and Ebenezer Scrooge, the miserly owner of a successful counting house, spends yet another Christmas season ignorant to the true meaning of the season. At home, Scrooge receives a visit from the ghost of his long-dead business partner, Jacob Marley. In an attempt to convince Scrooge to change while there is still time, Marley sends the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come. Each Spirit takes Scrooge on a journey of his missed opportunities to ease the suffering of man kind until Scrooge’s own, terrifying and lonely end is depicted. These chilling scenes of the future finally spur Scrooge to action. He awakes from his “dream” and begins to celebrate life.
