A know-it-all elf attempts to keep Santa safe along with the help of technology, Rudolph (the irradiated reindeer), and a crew of misfits when Santa undertakes a superhuman mission.
When one last Christmas letter is found, Santa is determined to fulfill an impossible wish. A little girl wants her daddy home for Christmas, despite the man's death in an accident. However, Santa is determined to make her wish come true no matter what he has to do.
Thus begins a saga of storming the Gates of Heaven and descending to the realm of Satan. Nothing will deter Santa even the sacrifice of his own existence. Meanwhile the smart-mouthed elf and the reindeer with Rudolph leading do their best to help, but sometimes add to the confusion.
At times it's like reading two different stories as Teppo segues into producing a play amid the machinations of a bunch of shysters. Somehow, Rudolph carries the day.
This hilarious Christmas tale won't be to everyone's taste, but for those who like snappy dialog, an imagination gone a little wild, and creative use of technology, Teppo offers a refreshing change from traditional Christmas stories. Loyalty and fidelity are tested and retested on this incredible journey.
