From Wikipedia:

Set on Christmas night, the story of Arthur Christmas revolves around Santa's ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole, his family and especially around his son, Arthur. When on a Christmas night a single present for a very upset little girl is missed, Arthur must go on a mission with Grandsanta and elf Byrony using an old sled to deliver the present before the Christmas morning.
