Christmas CEO Plot
Chris Whitaker, a small toy company CEO was once a 10 years old child who used to sell homemade toys instead of a lemonade. She sold those toys with her bestfriend Joe and fulfilled their dream to startup a toy company together which they named CJ Toys. As the college life finished, Chris started focusing on making big profits and completely ignoring the quality of the toys. This leads to a complete failure and years later she is forced to seal a deal with a big toy company but she needs the sign of her estranged partner.
