In the TV movie All I Want for Christmas, Elizabeth (Melissa Sagemiller) is an executive who’s told by her boss to listen more attentively to others. During the holiday season, she meets one of Santa’s helpers who gifts her a pin that allows her to hear everything — even unspoken thoughts of anyone she meets. With her new gift/power, she tries to be a better person.
