    Years after the events of the children's classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, a darker story begins.

Picking up the case, the North Pole's guardian Sam the Snowman unravels a gruesome story of revenge set against the backdrop of time and change. If Christmas is ever to be the same again, Jolly Old Saint Nick must reunite his flock and gather the support of old friends before a once-trusted ally turned foe can complete his insidious master plan.
