Synopsis

Ralphie Parker wants only one thing for Christmas: An Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. Set in the 1940's in the fictional town of Hulman, Indiana, A Christmas Story tells of Ralphie's desperate quest to ensure this most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree this Christmas.

The biggest obstacle standing in his way is his mother's fear that "You'll shoot your eye out!" But Ralphie is a man with a mission, and he hatches a series of schemes designed to win his coveted holiday prize.

Along the way, he has to deal with his annoying little brother, a friend with his tongue frozen to a lamppost, a yellow-eyed bully, a cantankerous department store Santa, the neighbors' dogs, his old man's obsession with a "major award" he's won in a contest, his mom's militant defense of her Christmas turkey, a smoke-belching furnace, and an untimely, four-lettered slip of his tongue.
