Lucia is a very special girl. Her father Julius is the Danish Santa Claus and Lucia later wants to follow in his footsteps. Unfortunately, she as a girl is not allowed to become Santa Claus. Although Lucia attends International Christmas School, she has to learn to knit socks and bake instead of climbing through chimneys like the boys. When Lucia wins the Christmas lottery and one wish has to be fulfilled, she insists on being admitted into Santa class. The headmaster is horrified. Together with the council of elders he finds a trick to prevent this. There has just been an accident in the Danish town of Viborg. Albert’s father, an archaeologist, was attacked by a wild animal or perhaps even by evil Krampus in a cave, and he has been suffering from a mysterious disease ever since. If Lucia manages to heal Albert's father before the next Christmas meeting and thereby makes the boy happy, she will be allowed to join Santa class. So Lucia is bound and determined to fly into the human world...
