A contemporary twist on a holiday classic.

Clara attends a holiday party hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Flowers.  At the party, she meets Beau and they dance the night away.  Only one problem.  Clara is a passionate dancer but not the most coordinated.  She trips, falls and is whisked off to the hospital to learn that her ankle is broken.  That night her friends and get-well gifts swirl in her dreams.  Come one, come all to the perfect holiday treat for your friends and family!
