Synopsis: A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this Southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. It’s Christmas time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the town not exactly in a festive mood. The hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye Futrelle is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos as the rest of the citizens of Fayro spin out of control. Things are not looking too promising. This hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to shake the mistletoe and bring a smile to your face.
