A puppet Christmas adventure featuring the inventor of a snow cannon, Reodor, hedgehog Ludvik and raven Solan. The Christmas spirit is dampened by the editor of the local newspaper, who seizes their snow machine. Outside a devastating snowstorm is raging and Ludvik and Solan have to take action.
Somewhat to the east of the south and a bit west of the north lies Flaklypa, a Norwegian mountain village. Here, the inventor Reodor, hedgehog Ludvik and raven Solan are preparing for Christmas but something important is missing. Snow! The editor of the local newspaper wants to get his hands on Reodor's snow machine so that he can promise the people of Flaklypa a white Christmas. In the wrong hands, the snow machine invented to fulfil Ludvig's dream of a winter wonderland, turns out to be a dangerous tool. Ludvig and Solan have to find Reodor who has disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
“I wanted to make a Christmas movie based on the wonderful work of Kjell Aukrust, told with both warmth and humour. Kjell Aukrust’s unique characters are perfect for creating humour aimed at both children and grownups. As the film’s main character we are introduced to the ever apprehensive hedgehog Ludvig. Ludvig is a personal pessimist and afraid of changes in general. When disaster is threatening to wipe out the entire village of Flaklypa, he has to challenge his own fears and anxieties to save his friends and the village – and Christmas.” (Rasmus A. Sivertsen)
