Miles Cullen (Elliott Gould), a bored teller at a small bank in a large Toronto shopping mall (The Eaton Centre), accidentally learns that his place of business is about to be robbed when he finds a discarded note on one of the bank's counters one day. He also figures out who the would-be robber will be when he sees a mall Santa Claus hanging around outside the bank whose 'give to charity' sign is similar to the handwriting on the discarded stick-up note.

Instead of informing his bosses or contacting the police, Miles devises a way of keeping the cash from most of his window's transactions in an old lunch box of his own inside his briefcase rather than in the bank's till. As a result, the Santa Claus robber eventually arrives and holds up Miles at the teller's desk, and nets far less than the police and the bank think he has.

The thief, a psychopath named Harry Reikle (Christopher Plummer), figures out what happened, and makes a series of desperate and violent attempts to get the money (totalling CA$48,300) that Miles has kept for himself. Reikle starts following Miles around to and from his home, and making harassing phone calls to his place of residence....

Christopher Plummer makes a scary gun toting Santa in this clip from The Silent Partner.
