As described by Samuel French ... "Christmas Eve is tough for private investigator Cactus O'Riley (Tara Gillard), a white hot redhead with the holiday blues. She is trying to lure her secretary Fred (John Sansone) away from his protective mother (Wendy Almeida), dodging the affections of Deputy D.A. Windsor (Josh Greenwald), and considering closing her business. She doesn't need the added aggravation of two fugitives (Bert Torsey and David Ganio) who burst into her office looking for justice and a dead detective named Jake Marley (Henry Parkhurst). Cactus also doesn't need Fred's mother, who arrives to take Fred home but decides to stay because she thinks this is the Christmas murder mystery party she has always dreamed of attending. Christmas turns into a dickens of a holiday for Cactus as she solves mysteries, delivers small miracles and takes a second chance on love and sleuthing. Comedy, mystery, and romance converge in this charming contemporary Christmas tale where goodwill and justice triumph. "
