A young boy wins a contest to accompany Santa Claus on his Christmas Eve deliveries. But when three con men hijack the sleigh, the night goes horribly wrong.
Set in a world just around the corner from our own where a Big-Brother-like Santa Claus really exists, Billy Barnaby's is a dark but ultimately uplifting story of how a truly good heart can redeem even the most heartless evil.
