Apple continues to reach agreements to expand the content available on its streaming video platform, especially now that it has begun to cancel some of its series such as Little Voice or Dickinson. The latest agreement reached by Apple TV + is related to the documentary rights The Fight Before Christmas.
This documentary is produced by Dorothy Street Pictures and directed by Becky Read, same director of the documentary Three Identical Strangers, a documentary about triplets who were separated at birth and adopted by different families.
This documentary tells the story of Christmas-obsessed lawyer Jeremy Morris who planned the biggest Christmas event in a neighborhood in the United States, but his plans are hampered when the homeowners association claims that the event he plans to hold violates neighborhood rules.
The documentary follows the story of a northern Idaho neighborhood turned upside down by one man’s obsession with bringing Christmas cheer to everyone, through the largest community Christmas event America has ever seen.
Christmas-loving attorney Jeremy Morris’s plan hits a roadblock when the community of owners informs him that the event violates neighborhood rules. A feud breaks out over the holidays and things get out of hand.
As the situation worsens, the film raises the question of who wins when different rights and interests collide. Director Read unites polarized perspectives in this whimsical Christmas tale of liberties, with a message of difference and tolerance at its core.
