One Christmas Eve, a baby crawls into Santa's magic bag and is unknowingly brought back to the North Pole, so Santa decides to raise him as an elf and names him Buddy. Growing up, Buddy comes to the sad realization that he is not an elf, he is human. That is when Santa tells him that his real father, an arrogant president of a book publisher who never knew he was born, lives and works in New York City, and sends Buddy off on a journey to find him.
