One Christmas Eve a very long time in the past, a child crawled into Santa's bag of toys… Raised as an elf, Buddy grows into an grownup thrice bigger than the largest elf–and realizes that he won’t ever actually slot in on the North Pole. This vacation season, Buddy goes searching for his true place within the world–in New York Metropolis. Buddy finds his workaholic father…who's on Santa's "naughty" checklist, a brand new mom and a 10-year-old brother who doesn't consider in Santa Claus or elves. Right here, now, Buddy discovers his future…to avoid wasting Christmas for New York and the world!
