It’s the week before Christmas and Adam, a real-estate developer in his mid-thirties, is going through a difficult time in his life. His wife has recently passed away and now he must raise their very willful and imaginative five-year-old son all on his own.
On the day he goes back to work after his mourning period, he discovers that his business partner, Emilio, has scammed several of his clients and disappeared with the money.
Terrified that he will have to face a multi-million dollar debt, lose all his clients, and on top of that, go to jail, if he doesn’t find his business partner before the police find him, Adam pleads with his sister to take care of Ben while he heads out to find him. His sister is concerned about Adam but he promises to be back before Christmas.
That evening, as he’s leaving town, feeling hopeless and ruined, Adam sees a 9-year-old boy with bushy blonde hair standing in the middle of the train tracks as the train is about to cross. Adam quickly leaps out of his car and tackles the young boy saving him from the speeding train.
Adam wants to take the blonde boy back to his house so he can continue his search for his missing partner but the boy won’t tell him where he lives or who his parents are. Adam tells the boy to get in the car so he can take him to the police station but no matter how hard he tries he can’t get rid of the boy.
Eventually Adam gives up and decides to take the boy with him until he finds Emilio. Together Adam and the boy encounter strange characters and live through many exciting adventures. When Adam realizes the boy believes he’s the Little Prince from the famous children’s story Adam tries to persuade the boy that he’s delusional and needs to go back home to get medical help, but instead the boy convinces Adam that perhaps he really is the Little Prince.
As Adam and the boy go on an unforgettable road trip, Adam’s outlook on life begins to change as he rediscovers the power of imagination. With the little boy’s help Adam manages to find Emilio and he returns back home before Christmas with renewed hope and a new perspective on what is really essential.
