Watson, a reindeer living at the North Pole, has a dream; to fly with Santa on Christmas Eve. When Santa announces he will add to the Elite Eight, his well-known team of reindeer, Watson has his chance.
Troy, the head Elf flight instructor, assigns Watson's elf friends, Georgia and Sasha, to train him. They have no idea what they have gotten themselves into, but they are determined to help Watson succeed.
Excited by the prospect of a real chance to fly with Santa, Watson starts his training. It is soon apparent that flying is not his problem, landing is.
In the air, Watson is light-years ahead of all the others trying to win the coveted spot on the team, but trying to land back on the ground he is a disaster.
Time after time, Watson ends up in a pile of snow after tumbling down the runway on landing. It seems hopeless until they discover a secret about Watson that changes everything.
Can one determined reindeer, with the help of his good friends, find a way to overcome the problem? if he can't, he will never fly. But if he can, then maybe, just maybe, his dream may come true.
