Everyone thinks of Santa Claus as a magical figure without flaws, but the real men who keep his legend alive are nothing like the jolly ol' Saint Nick we've all grown up knowing. In reality, the mall Santa in your cherished children's photo has problems just like the rest of us. Even the jolliest of men fall victim to divorce, job loss, insecurity, and even the occasional hangover. I AM SANTA CLAUS (featuring Hall of Fame Wrestler, Mick Foley) is a documentary that follows the lives of five real-bearded professional Santa Clauses as they anticipate and prepare for the coming Christmas season while showing them for who they actually are – flawed, flesh-and-blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of a fictitious being.
