Synopsis

It's Christmas Eve, and Kitty is determined that everything is going to be jolly and perfect, despite a workaholic mother and absent father.  She has made plum pudding and wrapped presents.  She is singing carols and cutting out snowflakes.  She is doing her darndest.  But when Kitty's cynical brother Matt arrives, beat up and robbed, Kitty is going to have to work that much harder to find the true Christmas spirit.
