The annual Christmas is here again. The whole family was busy going out to celebrate the Christmas holiday, but they made a mistake and left the youngest member of the family, 8-year-old Kevin (Macaulay Culkin Macaulay Culkin) at home. Mom and Dad were in a hurry, but they were already out of town at this time, and there was nothing they could do for a while. On the contrary, Kevin was overjoyed, it was rare to be alone at home, so Kevin arranged the house into a “playground”.
Two thieves who had just been released from prison set their sights on Kevin’s house. When they sneaked into Kevin’s house, Kevin played a “game” with two stupid thieves by virtue of his eye-catching and the “playground mechanism” at home, full of jokes. Can Kevin finally win this “game”?
