An elementary-age boy is doubting the existence of Santa Claus. The evidence against this myth is mounting around him, especially with talk at school. As Christmas approaches, his doubts deepen. As Christmas Eve turns to evening, the Polar Express train pulls up to the boy’s home. Intrigued, he steps on after conversing with the train conductor. The Polar Express picks up other children, all decked out in their winter pajamas, and heads for the North Pole to witness Santa leaving on his rounds. The boy encounters several adventures on the train, including a hunt for a train ticket that has wildly flown outside. With a ghost living on top of the train and a wacky conductor, the trip to see Santa is filled with contrasting evidence that Christmas and Santa are real indeed.
