He makes no effort to hide his initial disdain and falls foul of the club organizer,young widow Laura,though the kids warm to him after he has taken them on a designer clothes shopping spree. In particular he befriends 'Fast' Freddie,so named for his skill at computer games, a teen-ager dying of a kidney disease,brought up in foster homes and for whom this will be his last Christmas. Helped by Laura's kindly mother Julia,Jonathan locates the boy's birth mother but she has no interest in reconciliation,so Jonathan and Julia develop a ploy,paying people to pose as Freddie's loving and long-lost family,ensuring that though this Christmas will be his last it will be his happiest.Such is Jonathan's devotion to organizing the deception that he gets fired,winning Laura's eventual respect. Not everything goes to plan but at least Freddie can pass on,knowing that people care for him and,four months later, the Moonbean members,Jonathan and Laura meet to give him a lavish send-off.
