A Christmas Carl tells the story of Carl Scrooge, proprietor of Scrooge’s Auto Body Shop in Cleburne, Texas. Much to the dismay of his employees, Carl announces the shop will remain open on Christmas day. With the help of a stranded Nashville-bound musician named Charlene Dickens, the staff rallies together to change his mind. While being spirited through a series of ingeniously devised events from the original Dickens “A Christmas Carol," Carl experiences something even greater...a change of heart.
