Paul Maddens, (Martin Freeman from The Office) is a primary school teacher in a small town with big aspirations. His dream is to stage the best-reviewed Nativity play in town, however this means competing against the posh rival school down the road. Mr. Maddens decides to raise the stakes by idly boasting that his ex-girlfriend Jennifer (Ashley Jensen from Extras), a Hollywood producer, is coming to see the show with the hope of turning it into a film. But the only trouble is – she isn’t coming at all, in fact they haven’t spoken in years. With eccentric assistant Mr Poppy fuelling his ‘little white lie’, Mr. Maddens suddenly finds himself a local celebrity and at the centre of quarrelling parents and over-excited children desperate in their bid for fame and fortune.
