Plot

Will Freeman is a British man who has never had to work a day in his life thanks to royalty income he receives from a popular Christmas song written by his father. He’s content but somewhat bored with his lifestyle until a quirky single mom and her 11-year-old son, Marcus, move in next door. Will strikes up an unlikely friendship with Marcus. Will then formulates a plan to exploit his new friendship with the boy by pretending to be a single dad –- because he discovers this makes him more attractive to the beautiful women he wants to date.
