All thanks to Jeremy Morris, a lawyer who is head over heels about the holiday plans the big blowout. However, the homeowners’ association catches wing of Morris’ plans and puts a wrench in the entire thing. Thus, a brewing fight emerges from it all.

The documentary is directed by Becky Read, who has produced projects such as ‘Three Identical Strangers,’ ‘The Trouble with Dad,’ and ‘No Man Left Behind.’ The Fight Before Christmas has been produced by Dorothy Street Pictures, with Julia Nottingham and Lisa Gomer Howes as producers, and Chris Smith signed on as executive producer.
