What is Elf musical about?

Elf tells the charming and comical story of Buddy who is mistakenly transported to the North Pole after accidentally crawling into Santa’s sack as a baby. Unaware that he is human, they raise Buddy as an elf, despite his enormous size and lacking ability to make toys. The crashing realisation dawns on him that he doesn’t belong in the North Pole and with Santa’s permission, he embarks on a journey to New York to find his birth father. Will Buddy be reunited with his birth father? And will that enable him to discover his true identity?
