It's Christmas Eve in a small Texas town. Cantankerous barbeque joint owner Buford Johnson gets in an argument with his wife, Darla. He tells her he is skipping Christmas, storms out of the restaurant, goes four wheeling in his pickup, runs into a twister, rolls his truck and goes into a coma. He comes back in his dream where he is visited by ex-business partner, Hank Walker, who is his ghost of Christmas past, present and future. Hank takes Buford (Scrooge) on a journey similar to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol only Texas style.
