Plot – Philip, an idealist and kind man, runs the 'Lifesavers' agency at Venice Beach, in California: it's a kind of crisis line who helps brokenhearted people or who's planning to commit suicide. Catherine O'Shaughnessey, who's in love with the superior, and Blanche Munchnik, a frustrated widow, work with him. Exactly on Christmas Eve, Philip receives an eviction notice from Stanley Tannenbaum, the owner, because he hasn't paid the rent yet. Furthermore, Blanche resigns and Catherine is in tears while some unknown people call non-stop the agency. In the meantime, 'Lifesavers' continues its activity: Gracie Barzini is pregnant and angry with Felix, her partner, who in turn is an aspiring but unlucky murals painter. Lobel, their resident, always goes around with his three dogs. Then there's Kinsky the vet, Louie the ukulele player and Chris, a transvestite who needs some solace. No one is having a happy Christmas Eve indeed. In fact, the group experiences some bizarre events, misunderstandings and unwanted gifts. Gracie accidentally kills even a client of the agency. As the corpse is hidden by the fir's branches and used as the Christmas tree trunk, during the crazy night finally many things find a positive solution.
