Have you ever wondered how Santa Claus grew up to be Santa? Discover the untold story of Santa’s life. Against breath-taking landscape and despite family tragedy and personal hardship is a big and pure heart filled with love for children around the world.

In a remote village in Lapland, young Nikolas loses his family in an accident and is looked after by the villagers. On Christmas Day every year, Nikolas has to move to a new home. To show his gratitude, Nikolas makes toys for the children of the families as good-bye presents. Over the years, his 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 villagers have to send Nikolas away to work as an apprentice for the hermit carpenter, Iisakki. Under the severe tutelage of Iisakki, Nikolas develops skills that enable him to create even better presents, and to work even faster. He also learns to wear his red suit that becomes his trademark and deliver presents with the help of reindeers.

Years pass by. Nicolas is now a very old man. The Christmas present-giving tradition is in danger of coming to an end, unless a miracle happens.
