The four young men in this movie are full of high spirits on Christmas Eve and want to go out and have some fun. Unfortunately, they are crippled and live in a home for the handicapped, so it's not as simple as it might sound for them to do that. However, after stealing some money from the home's Christmas fund, they go out and do their best to carouse. Along the way, they encounter an angel capable of granting them each three wishes, which they use gleefully but not wisely, only returning home safely because one of them had the foresight to reserve his last wish. Despite their cautionary experiences the night before, the very next evening the youngsters are ready to set out again.
