All I Want For Christmas...

A child who's never had a dad suddenly gets two

To be truthful, nine-year-old Taffy and her single mother Julia are doing quite well without men. But with Christmas coming and Taffy playing the lead role in the school play, there's nothing Taffy would like better for the holidays than her father. Julia finds the idea less appealing; after all, Taffy's father Robert abandoned Julia when she was pregnant. But Julia, who's never told Taffy the truth, doesn't have the heart to disappoint her. Desperate, she persuades her straitlaced, fastidious colleague Volker to impersonate Taffy's long-lost father, an "Arctic explorer" who's just come back in from the cold. All goes surprisingly well - until Robert, the real father, shows up. He loves Julia, he says, and wants to start over from scratch. Though she's a master liar, Julia can't fib her way out of this predicament much longer, particularly since Volker is falling in love with her, and Taffy likes both "dads"!
