È la vigilia di Natale del 1860 e tutti si sentono più buoni. Tutti tranne il ricco Ebenezer Scrooge che non sopporta né le feste, né la gente e men che meno il suo segretario Bob. Di notte però Scrooge viene visitato da tre fantasmi: uno gli fa rivivere la sua giovinezza, l'altro lo porta a casa di Bob e il terzo gli prospetta un lugubre futuro. Al suo risveglio Scrooge non sarà più lo stesso. Musical natalizio tratto dal classico racconto di Dickens. Vale la pena vedere Finney come Scrooge e Guinness che fa lo spettro.
