Set on Christmas Eve, Irene and Arthur have their house festooned for the return of Declan, the self-made millionaire from New Zealand, and his captivating wife Amanda. If everything goes to plan, Arthur’s future is secure – and it would – if Old Matty were not around to listen at doors. Add in Matty’s estranged wife Gladys and the celebrations soon turn sour. As family and friends reunite in a ‘Winter Wonderland’ the old secrets are suddenly unwrapped like the Christmas presents nobody ever wanted.
