What Is the Story of Elf?
Elf begins at Santa’s North Pole workshop when one of the elves, Buddy, learns that he is not actually an elf; he’s human. When Santa tells Buddy the whereabouts of his birth father, Buddy heads to New York City hoping to reconnect with his dad. His father turns out to be a cranky workaholic who wants nothing to do with Buddy or his Christmas-loving antics. Buddy however develops a bond with his step-mother, half brother and a beautiful Macy’s co-worker and helps restore the lost holiday spirit of his jaded New York family.
