In a remote village in Lapland, young Nikolas loses his family in an accident. The villagers decide to look after the orphaned boy together. Each family will take care of Nikolas for one year. At the end of each year, on Christmas Day, Nikolas has to move to a new home. To show his gratitude to the villagers, Nikolas decides to make toys for the children of the families as good-bye presents. Over the years, Nikolas´s former adoptive families become many, and soon almost every house has presents on its doorstep on Christmas morning. When the village suffers a food shortage, the Christmas present tradition is in danger of coming to an end.

Dubbed in English.
