Erik is a nine-year-old boy, living in a youth home because of his problematic parents. He never parts from his beanie. When he's feeling particularly low, he pulls it right over his nose. Because the cap was knitted by his mother. Life in the home is not easy for Erik, a quiet and reserved boy who tends to get bullied by a gang of older boys. His only wish is to go home for Christmas. Instead, he gets to spend the holiday with a wealthy family and their seven-year-old daughter Lučka, who wishes for a puppy and a sister. In the middle of the night, Erik and Lučka encounter Santa in the family’s living room. Full of hopes, they hide in his car. They embark on an extraordinary adventure…

“Working with Kaja and Gaj was a one-of-a-kind experience for me. At the beginning of the shoot, I saw them as talented kids and now, when we’ve wrapped the movie, I consider them great actors and good friends. I enjoyed their sincerity, incredible acting skills and stamina every day. While the schedule was adjusted for child actors, the monthslong filming can prove quite strenuous even for experienced professionals."
