In just one night, he's seen his past, his present and his future...and they've all come back to haunt him. It's Christmas Eve 1843, and Ebenezer Scrooge (Patrick Stewart) has just buried his long-time friend and business partner, Jacob Marley (Bernard Lloyd). Understandably, Scrooge is in a melancholy mood as he returns to work. Seven years later, Scrooge's bad mood has become a perpetual state of mind. His loyal, but meek clerk. Bob Cratchit (Richard E. Grant), is the constant target of Scrooge's cruelty and bitterness. Scrooge' s nephew, Fred Bowley (Dominic West), spreads Christmas cheer, but all his uncle can say is 'Bah! Humbug!'.
Scrooge finds himself alone in his office on Christmas Eve. He hears the rattling of chains and sees before him, the ghost of Jacob Marley. Marley warns Scrooge that the suffering he causes others, he will have to repay - even in death, and warns him that there's only one chance to escape that fate. He also informs Scrooge that three spirits will visit him and he is to obey them in order to redeem himself.
