As a young boy Ebenezer Scrooge loses his father, who was unable to pay his debts, to the jailhouse. In fear of making the same mistake, Ebenezer makes it his goal to save his money as a preventative measure. Though a hardworking and successful banker, Ebenezer's obsession with money makes him a cruel, stingy, cold, and lonely old man. Then, on Christmas eve, three ghosts (past, present, and future),remind Ebenezer that greed made him lose his beloved Emily, and show him how his inability to be kind or generous not only promises an after life of misery, but also leads to the death of Tiny Tim. The next day, Scrooge wakes up a new person and joyfully runs through the streets. With a new warm heart, Scrooge spreads his generosity by giving to charity, raising wages, and giving Tiny Tim the best Christmas possible.
