"Mixed Nuts" is a comedy film that revolves around the employees of Lifesavers, a crisis hotline business in Venice, California, during the Christmas holidays. The story takes place over the span of one crazy night as a series of chaotic events unfold.

Philip, the director of Lifesavers, is a kind-hearted but inept man struggling to keep the organization afloat. His loyal employees include the sweet and nurturing Catherine, the flamboyant and aspiring actor Chris, and the sardonic and sarcastic Mrs. Munchnik. The hotline is also manned by Gracie, an aging transgender woman, and Felix, who has a fascination with serial killers.

As the film starts, Lifesavers faces financial difficulties, and the lease of their office is threatened due to unpaid rent. On top of that, it's Christmas Eve, and the hotline is flooded with calls from lonely and desperate individuals, adding to the chaotic atmosphere. One of their regular callers, an emotional widower named Philip, continuously harasses the hotline out of loneliness.

Soon, the already tense situation spirals out of control. Philip, desperate for money, hatches a plan to dress as Santa and hire himself out to unsuspecting partygoers. However, his plan backfires as he gets caught up in one mishap after another, leading to a collision with an ice cream truck and getting pursued by the police.

Meanwhile, Catherine is dealing with her own personal crisis when she discovers that she is pregnant by her inept boyfriend, who promptly disappears when she breaks the news to him. Distraught, Catherine sets out to find him and resolves to tell him about the pregnancy.

Amidst the chaos, a mysterious man named Felix arrives at Lifesavers claiming to have killed his girlfriend and seeking help. Mrs. Munchnik believes him and becomes terrified, while the rest of the employees are skeptical. The situation becomes increasingly ambiguous, leaving everyone on edge.

As tensions continue to rise, numerous comedic situations and misunderstandings arise throughout the night. Despite the challenges, the Lifesavers team does their best to handle the calls and assist those in need, even if their solutions are sometimes unconventional.

In the end, Lifesavers' Christmas party turns into a madcap affair. The employees, along with some of the troubled callers, come together and find solace in each other's company. They realize that despite their own personal struggles and the chaos surrounding them, they have the ability to make a difference and bring a little joy into each other's lives.

"Mixed Nuts" explores themes of loneliness, redemption, and the importance of human connection, all set against a backdrop of Christmas cheer and humor. It is a heartwarming and entertaining tale that showcases the unpredictable nature of life and the resilience of the human spirit, even in the face of crisis.
