"Ebbie" has unscrupulously worked her way to the top, and though she finds herself alone, she is satisfied. She overworks and underpays her employees, and avoids all emotional attachments, even to the orphan daughter of her beloved sister. On Christmas Eve, she is visited by the ghost of her former mentor and partner Jake Marley, who warns her to change her ways. She then receives three visitations by spirits who attempt to show her where she has gone wrong in life and what she must do to avoid an eternity of punishment.


Echo Bridge Entertainment released the movie on DVD on September 25, 2012. Kino Lorber (under license from A+E Networks) re-released it on DVD on November 20, 2018.
