Small-time thieves Trish (Mary Stuart Masterson) and her niece Patsy (Lauren Pratt) are at a diner, planning their next heist. Patsy tells her Aunt Trish that it's wrong that they are pick-pocketing people but Trish believes it's OK in some way.
Trish's old beau Mel (David Hewlett) comes to the diner to talk to Trish, being chased by two guys to whom he owes money. Trish and Patsy leave to go to Limberburg Mall. Patsy puts on a blond wig and begins to pick-pocket Mr. Limber (Lawrence Dane), the owner of the mall. They are caught by the mall security guard Bert (Mark Ruffalo).
Trish and Patsy are brought to the office of Limber, arrested and sentenced. After Christmas, on December 26, Patsy is to be given to a family who can look out for her interests better and Trish is to serve time. Bert is to keep a watch over them until then.
As the days go by, Trish and Bert begin to develop an attraction for each other. After Christmas is ruined for Trish and Patsy, Bert takes them to Maplewood where Patsy confesses all her bad deeds to Santa's head elf and writes Santa a letter.
On December 26, Patsy is kidnapped by Mel. He is caught by Bert and everyone ends up back in the office where Social Services officials await them. But with Patsy's wish coming true, they get a second chance. Mel is hauled off to jail. Bert quits his job and proposes to Trish.
