An Alaskan boy finds several large Christmas packages lying in the snow, clearly fallen out of Santa's sleigh. It's the day before Christmas, and that means Lance has very little time to chase down Santa and see the presents delivered as intended. Because what's inside the boxes is more important than just toy trains and dolls, and Santa's trail will also lead to an important personal discovery. More
When young Lance discovers several large Christmas packages lying in the snow, he quickly deduces that they have fallen out of Santa's sleigh. Instead of toys and games, though, he finds something inside that he knows must be delivered on time at any cost-- and this is the day before Christmas.
Under darkening skies, Lance stows away with the packages on an airplane that will cross Santa's path up ahead. He's embarking on a journey that he thinks will save someone's Christmas and prove the existence of Santa once and for all. He's right about on the first count... but what about the second?
