90 min.Fairy taleDK/FeatureChildren's films, Animation

Eight-year-old Julius lives in an orphanage. Julius is a bit of an outsider and secretly still believes in Santa Claus. When he is confronted with the fact that Santa Claus may just be the headmaster of the orphanage dressing up, Julius loses not only his belief in Santa, but also the belief in himself. But then something strange happens, and suddenly Julius finds himself in a magic world.
