Capturing Santa

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

It's Christmas and the young Chris O' Dowd is taken to meet Santa at the local supermarket in his hometown in Ireland. Unsettled by stories of Santa coming down the chimney and resentful of always receiving hand-me-down presents once owned by his sisters instead of the Subbuteo he dreams of, he pees on Santa's lap. Later at home he sets a trap for Santa, a mouse-trap and glass of milk with a heavy dose of washing powder, only to discover that Santa has brought him that long-dreamed of Subbuteo.
