The destinies of two families are irrevocably tied together after a cyclist is hit off the road by a jeep in the night before Christmas Eve.

During a night before Christmas, a waiter cycling home from work at a gala at a prestigious private school is hit by a car and the driver flees, leaving the badly injured waiter lying in the street. The next day, two well-known families in the city are involved in the case of the waiter, who is hospitalized near death.
