Noel is an independent Christmas drama film.


This page about a Christmas special or an episode from a television series with a Christmas theme is in need of a longer synopsis. You can help the Christmas Special Wiki by expanding this synopsis.

The film centers around five strangers who are linked together — and who meet each other at separate times — by a series of events that take place on Christmas Eve.

The main character is Rose, a woman who is struggling to cope with caring for her mother, an Alzheimer's patient. Meanwhile, Nina and Mike are a young couple on the verge of breaking up due to Mike's increasingly jealous behavior. Elsewhere, Artie is an old waiter who searches for his deceased wife every Christmas Eve. Finally, Jules is a young man who deliberately damages his hand so he can attend a Christmas party in the emergency room, as that was the only happy memory of his childhood. In addition to the five main characters, the mysterious Charlie is introduced as the person who may be able to help Rose finally realize that she must look after herself more, rather than worrying about everyone else.
