Albert is the hilarious, sweet and exciting story of a little Douglas fir tree named Albert who loves Christmas more than anyone, and dreams of being THE big Christmas tree in Empire City. With his favourite holiday approaching, he becomes the star at Earth Mama's nursery by getting all the other indoor plants into the spirit. But when a TV newscast announces the search for the most famous Christmas tree, Albert knows he is meant to be that tree. Joined by his two best friends, a fun-loving palm tree and a rambunctious weed, Albert treks across the country to live his dream of becoming the world's most famous Christmas tree!
