Macaulay Culkin stars as Kevin McAllister, who once again is separated from his parents during a Christmas vacation trip. This time his parents travel to Florida, while Kevin ends up on a different flight to New York City. In New York, Kevin befriends the owner of a toy store and a homeless pigeon lady. When Kevin learns that his nemesis from the first film, Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern), have escaped from prison and plan to rob the toy store, he knows he must stop them.
A third film, Home Alone 3, was released in 1997 without Macaulay Culkin.
