In the one-hour episode, T.I., his wife Tiny and their six children travel from Atlanta to the North Pole in hopes of saving Christmas after Santa disappears. The gang encounters familiar characters such as Jack Frost and Mrs. Claus along the way, but the big question remains: Will they be able to save Christmas?
