A trip to Lapland leads to immense changes in the life of a single mother and her seven- year-old son. Love, hope and efforts to save the life of the little boy will dramatically change the lives of the two grown-ups. Santa is a story about human relations and the often painful challenges that life poses. In order to overcome these challenges one must believe in the miracle of a fairy-tale and…breath in the fresh air of the North. It’s so fresh, you almost want to drink it. It‘s truly worth living for.
