Laurence Fox, Sarah Smart and Tamzin Outhwaite star in this made-for-TV drama set at Christmas time. After being charged with drink driving, the wealthy Jonathan Donald (Fox) is sentenced to 100 hours community service at The Moonbeam Club which helps troubled youths. He is initially unenthusiastic about the work but then he meets and befriends Freddie Copeland (Jack McMullen), a terminally ill 20-year-old who is about to celebrate his last Christmas. To make Christmas extra special for Freddie, Jonathan tries to arrange a meeting between him and his biological mother but she is unwilling to get involved with her son. Instead Jonathan, with the help of a few friends, organises a fake family for Freddie, hoping to give the young man the best Christmas he could have wished for.
