A Manhattan ghost story. Ebenezer Clinton Scrooge III presides over a vast media empire from his Manhattan headquarters. This Christmas Eve from the vantage of his boardroom eyrie he surveys the city and the restless flow of humanity below. It is a season he despises, a season when hope is rekindled only to be inevitably extinguished along with the gaudy festive lights. Yet this night he is a troubled soul. A face glimpsed in the bustling sidewalk crowds from the comfort of his chauffeur driven limousine has stirred old memories best left undisturbed. Could it possibly have been that of his old partner and adversary Jake Marley? Impossible! Jake is long since dead, drowned in an unfortunate 'accident' several Christmases past. How is it possible then that Jake Marley's reflection stares back at him through the boardroom window? For media mogul Clinton Ebenezer Scrooge III this Christmas Eve will be unlike any other. He is about to embark on the most terrifying journey of his life. It is a journey in which he must confront a painful past before he can right terrible wrongs, before he can know redemption. A journey that leads to a place he left long ago, a place where hope abandoned a lost child forever. This night Scrooge will discover the past cannot be erased by power but is he prepared to pay the price demanded for his salvation?
