Morgen kommt kein Weihnachtsmann

A Film by Anna Ludwig

Synopsis

I DON’T BELIEVE IN FATHER CHRISTMAS.
A single mum is very sad as she isn’t able to afford to hire a Father Christmas on Christmas Eve for her children this year – a typical tradition in this family and parts of Germany.
The brothers just notice that mum is unhappy as Father Christmas won’t be coming around. Their conclusion: Mum still believes in Father Christmas.
Now it’s up to them to organize a Father Christmas in order to make mum happy again.
