Miles Cullen, a bored teller at a small bank in a large Toronto shopping mall (the Eaton Centre), accidentally learns that his place of business is about to be robbed when he finds a discarded hold up note on one of the bank’s counters. He also figures out who the would-be robber is when he sees a mall Santa Claus hanging around outside the bank whose “give to charity” sign has handwriting, (especially the letter G) similar to that on the discarded note. Instead of informing his bosses or contacting the police, Miles begins stashing the cash from his window’s transactions in an old lunch box rather than in the bank’s till. When the Santa Claus robber holds up Miles at the teller’s desk, Miles, having expected his doing so, hands over a small amount and then reports he gave all the money from his day’s transactions.

The Santa Claus thief, a sadistic psychopath named Harry Reikle, figures out what happened when he sees news reports of how much was stolen during the robbery. He makes a series of violent attempts to get the money (totalling CA$48,300) that Miles has kept for himself. Reikle starts following Miles to and from his home, and making threatening phone calls to him. Miles’s coolness under pressure has attracted the attention of bank colleague Julie Carver, who has been having an affair with the bank’s married manager, Charles Packard. After escorting Julie to a Christmas party at the Packards’ house, he reveals to Julie that he is attracted to her, but refuses to sleep with her after receiving a phone call from Reikle asking him to “pick a number.”
