Way up north in Greenland, 12-year-old Lucia lives with her mother Claudia and her father Julius, the famous Father Christmas. Lucia goes to International Santa School and wants to be the next Father Christmas in Denmark. But it is not allowed, only boys go to Santa school. When Lucia continues to protest, the headmaster gives her one chance to prove she can be as good as the boys. She must fulfil the boy Albert's greatest Christmas wish: that his father, who is suffering from a mysterious disease, gets well. Albert’s father has been infected by the horrible Krampus. Lucia realizes that it is an almost impossible task; she has to catch Krampus to cure Albert's father. Lucia goes to Denmark with her father in tow to track down Krampus, and this is the beginning of an amazing Christmas adventure as they discover that someone else is also chasing Krampus.
