In this ultimate British feel-good Christmas film, primary school teacher Paul Maddens (Martin Freeman) is given the biggest challenge of his life - staging the school's musical version of the Nativity. As competition with the posh local school heats up, Paul idly raises the stakes to an insurmountable level, claiming that his ex-girlfriend Jennifer (Ashley Jenson), a Hollywood Producer, is coming to see his show with a view to turning it into a film. A massive dilemma, seeing as they havenâ€™t spoken in years!
To make matters worse Paulâ€™s newly appointed assistant (Mark Wootton) has taken strides in fuelling hs 'little white lie', making matters a whole lot more complicated as Maddens finds himself in the midst of much unwanted attention. Squabbling parents and over-excited children will join forces in their bid for fame and fortune.
