Drew Latham is a wealthy executive leading an empty, shallow life. Facing another lonely Christmas ahead, Drew wants to revisit his old childhood home and possibly relive some of his old holiday memories. But when he arrives, he finds that the house where he was raised is now no longer the home he grew up in. Owned by another family, Drew offers a nice financial reward that has the family all a buzz. But is Drew's generous cash offer only the beginning of an annoying visitor or will everyone be able to find the true holiday spirit?
