One child dreams of having a family. A man dressed as Santa Claus must figure out who he really is. A taxi driver, master of improvised lies, meets a girl ready to do anything to make her dreams come true. Coincidence meets Uncle Claus and the child with the beautiful waitress Milena and colorful street musicians – a gambler, a drunkard and a wayward old man. As the story evolves they also meet the mistress of the Danish prince and even the President and the Prime Minister.
Each of the characters seeks what he craves most – family, identity, forgiveness, love, compassion, friendship. There is no way their wishes will not come true, as long as they believe in Uncle Claus.
