Christmas Story is a touching tale that reveals the true origins of the joyous gift giving celebration of charity and good cheer. Many years ago up near the Arctic Circle, a small boy named Nikolas (Hanna Pekka-Borjmann) tragically becomes an orphan when his parents suddenly perish in an accident. Alone in his tiny Lapland village, Nikolas is collectively adopted by the townspeople who all look after him as their own. He rotates from household to household on a yearly basis, and his annual move is commemorated on Christmas Day. To thank his foster parents, the grateful Nikolas crafts small toys for their children in return for their generosity. As Nikolas comes of age, he is sent to live in the house of Iisakki (Kari Vaananen) as an apprentice to the grumpy town carpenter. Nikolas begins to soften the hard-hearted carpenter, and together they labor to preserve Nikolas' gift giving tradition of Christmas Day, a ritual that has begun to grow beyond Nikolas and his circle of adoptive families. This spirited Finnish film captures the heart warming magic of Christmas.moreless
