Primary school teacher Paul Maddens is being charged with the biggest challenge of his life - mounting the school's musical version of the Nativity. Competing against the posh neighbouring school for the honour of the best reviewed show in town, the stakes are raised when Paul idly boasts that his ex-girlfriend Jennifer , a Hollywood producer, is coming to see his show with a view to turning it into a film. The only trouble is - they haven't spoken in years.
With eccentric teaching assistant Mr Poppy fuelling his 'little white lie', Maddens suddenly finds himself a local celebrity and at the centre of quarelling parents and over-excited children desperate in their bid for fame and fortune.
