When Virginia tells her classmates she wants to be Santa Claus when she grows up, she faces laughter and ridicule. Inspired by Santa's presence on TV, she doesn't give up her ambitions and continues to embody the jolly spirit by wearing red everywhere she goes. She even stuffs a pillow under her shirt and stands on the street corner alone in an attempt to spread the holiday cheer. To help her achieve her dreams, Virginia's parents turn the family truck into her own personal sled by covering it in dazzling lights and helping her deliver gifts to the town while everyone else is asleep. A classmate sees Virginia from his window and smiles, letting her know that he now understands what can happen when you believe in the wonder of the season.
