On Christmas Eve in a small town in northern Finland strange things are taking place. Reindeer are being slaughtered, children are going missing and mysterious explosions are occurring within the heart of the nearby mountains.
When a young local boy named Pietari takes it upon himself to investigate he discovers the truth about the Christmas legend. The tomb of Santa Claus has been uncovered and he has escaped. Pietari must forget everything he previously believed about Santa Claus and work with the towns reindeer herders to capture the monstrous evil Santa, much unlike the one of childrens dreams.
