Story:  To superstar singer Ebony Scrooge, Christmas is just another day of the year – another day to exploit her entourage, insult her family and steal from the less fortunate, before a fateful Christmas Eve changes her tune forever. Enter the ghost of Marli Jacob, Ebony’s former singing partner, who informs the impossible Diva that she will be visited by three spirits: the sharp-tongued Ghost of Christmas Past, the hard-drinking Ghost of Christmas Present and eventually, the Ghost of Christmas Future, who materializes in an episode of VH1’s Behind the Music. Once Ebony realizes the errors of her miserly ways, she heads out to set the record straight, as only a true Diva can.  Source(s):  IMDB.
