Joe's friend, Charlie, tries to talk him out of murder, but he won't listen. Joe has no other plans for his life but revenge.
Charlie then tries to explain to Joe that the situation is more complicated than he realizes. Molloy is now married...to Lucille, Joe's ex-girlfriend!
What! That doesn't go over well with Joe. In his mind, there is only one thing left for him to do...dress up as Santa and go over to their house with a gun.
