From perfecting the iconic laugh to navigating the sleigh and reindeer, Scott has his work cut out finding the perfect Santa protege. He also realizes how difficult it will be to give up a job that has defined his life for so long.
Along the way, Scott rediscovers his own Christmas spirit and passion for bringing joy to children all over the world.
