When Santa shows up at the local police station requesting protection from a woman who has vowed to shoot him if he lands on her roof, the young cop on duty decides to humor the old man and takes a ride to the woman's house. What he finds is a woman still grieving the loss of her little brother from years before when he was killed falling off their roof waiting for Santa.
