A few days before Christmas, Santa’s toy factory elves faint from overexertion. Following the advice of his wife, Santa Claus travels in search of a miracle cure. But en route, a violent storm damages the sleigh, which makes an emergency landing in the center of Paris.
Arrested by the police after involuntarily making a mess in a pharmacy, Santa takes advantange of the guards’ momentary lapse of attention at the police station and escapes. Lost in the huge city with incomprehensible laws, the old man finds refuge with Thomas, a young lawyer who lives in a small apartment with his wife Amelie and their two children.
Despite work, the stress of family life, their New Year's Eve preparations and the presence of a rather monotonous relative, the couple promise to help Santa find the precious remedy.
