Mitch Taylor, is a workaholic attorney and widowed dad to a 12 year old son Robbie. Lately it seems Mitch is in way over his head. Between always trying to please his hard edged boss at the firm, juggling a girlfiend who's starting to run out of patience over his inability to commit and the mountain of work he's buried under trying to make partner at his law firm. Of course his sone Robbie has problems of his own; trying not to seem like a total nerd in front of the girl he likes, the school bully who's made Robbie his latest target and even worse, the unwanted lead role in the school's upcoming Christmas Pageant. And with Christmas coming up, Robbie's turned up the heat on Mitch to actually go out of his way this year to make Christmas all it's cracked up to be. One definitely thinks the other's got it easy - that is until a mysterious toy left on their doorstep causes them to switch bodies, forcing this father and son to find out what it's like to spend the holidays in each other's shoes.
