Uh Oh! It's Christmas Eve, and Howard Langston has just realized that he's forgotten to buy his son "Turbo Man," the hottest, coolest, action figure on the market. The problem is, the coveted toy has been sold out of stores for weeks! Howard's search for a Turbo Man sends him on a VERY frenzied odyssey throughout the city, filled with enough misadventures to drive even the most grounded parent insane. Furthermore, Howard's main competitor for the plaything is Myron, an obnoxious postal worker who gleefully antagonizes Howard every step of the way. Can Howard defy the odds and find a Turbo Man in time?
After promising his son the best present ever, a harried father joins a mad parent dash for the hottest Christmas toy of the season: the Turbo Man action figure. What's a poor, devoted father to do? An unwitting commentary on Yuletide commercialism.
