It’s Christmas Eve in the city that never sleeps, but Ebenezer doesn't feel like celebrating. Her girlfriend of ten years has just left her, her job as a debt collector is slowly killing her, and worst of all, she hasn't truly acted in years.
But when three spirits representing the places and ambitions closest to her heart pay her a visit, Ebenezer just might find a reason to end her life—or a reason to keep going.
Set during the global recession, this retelling of Charles Dickens's immortal classic A Christmas Carol explores the vagaries of growing up and exchanging old dreams for new meaning.
