Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag and is transported to the North Pole. Raised as an elf, Buddy doesn’t realize he is actually human until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities force him to face the truth. Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his father. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
