It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but not everyone is feeling so festive.  Instead of spreading holiday cheer, The Santa Serial killer has everyone in mass hysteria. Including Maya, who already has a demanding job, an emotionally unavailable husband, and a needy lover begging her to start a new life together.  Now this?
