It’s Christmas Eve as reclusive rock star Mick Mondo sits alone by the fire, convinced that he’s been forgotten by his friends, former fans, and bandmates. Solstina the Solstice Goddess appears to remind him of the many reasons for the Holiday season. While her intentions are good, the guests who sing holiday classics only remind him, and us, of the cultural shifts and uncertain times we live in. It takes a special performance of holiday classics by MAYHEM!, and a return to the stage with Mondo’s band Streaker, to bring a bit of joy to the old rocker’s heart. Or does it? Find out in this send-up of Made-for-TV Holiday Specials.
