    The Story

    The story follows the grumpy miser Ebenezer Scrooge's experience on one cold Christmas Eve, where he has an unexpected visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Punished for a lifetime of greed and shackled in chains, the ghost tries to convince Scrooge to change his miserly ways so he can escape the same fate. Except, he'll have to have three more eerie encounters first!
