In this 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 the intent to turn it into a film -- massive dilemma, since they haven't spoken in years! To make matters worse Paul's newly appointed assistant (Mark Wootton) has taken strides in fuelling his "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.
