It stars Cory Doran as Trevor, Lisa Lennox as Veronica, and Nathan Stephenson as DJ. The film takes us on a journey with Trevor, a ten-year-old boy who hatches an ingenious plan to catch Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. Trevor, like many kids, has always been fascinated by Santa Claus and the magic of Christmas. But unlike most kids, he wants to see Santa in person – not just receive presents.

The plot begins with Trevor and his two best friends, Veronica and DJ, impatiently waiting for Santa Claus to arrive on Christmas Eve. They have stayed up all night, hoping to catch a glimpse of him, but to no avail. Finally, Trevor decides that it's time to take matters into his own hands. He enlists the help of his friends to create a contraption that will catch Santa as he drops off presents. Their plan involves creating a towering net composed of blankets and string tied to the top of a tree. When Santa and his reindeer land on the roof, their weight will cause the net to drop down, trapping them inside.

Despite numerous setbacks, the trio is determined to succeed in catching Santa Claus. Along the way, they encounter a series of comical mishaps, and unexpected obstacles that threaten to derail their entire plan. Amidst all this, the movie beautifully captures the spirit of Christmas, highlighting the importance of kindness, family, and friendship.

Throughout the movie, we see Trevor and his friends get into all sorts of goofy antics, from decorating gingerbread houses to making snow angels. We also get a glimpse into their everyday school life, which adds a charming realism to the film. Meanwhile, Trevor's mom is struggling to keep up with her hectic schedule as a working single mother, and Trevor's undying determination to catch Santa ultimately brings her and her son closer together.
