Christmas Eve in Montréal and, in the midst of the worst blizzard of the year, a man performs that mundane miracle of pleasing everyone, even himself. In this feature film Léopold emerges as the happy-go-lucky type who procrastinates, but for whom everything falls neatly into place. In the midst of a storm, with a snowplow to operate, a boss to please, a New York cousin to meet at the station, and a fur coat to buy for his wife, Léopold does the impossible by doing it all. In the end he even manages to get to midnight Mass, with a conscience almost as clear as the streets he has plowed.
