The Legend of the Christmas Witch
Original title: La Befana vien di notte
German title: Unsere Lehrerin, die Weihnachtshexe
Paola seems to be a pretty, caring teacher who lives a normal life. However, she has a big secret: at night she turns into hook-nosed Christmas witch Befana who brings children presents riding on her broom. For 500 years, this has been her task which she loves more than anything else despite the stress. The children and their secret desires mean the world to her. Due to a turbulent mistake Paola is filmed riding her broom at night and now everyone knows that Befana really exists. To make matters worse, vengeful toy maker Mr. Johnny takes advantage of this knowledge and kidnaps her. By chance, her student Riccardo witnesses this kidnapping and drums five of his classmates up to free their teacher. They bravely get on their bicycles and set off together on a long and rugged road to Mr. Johnny. But it is not that easy and fighting is inevitable. The rescue squad has to patch things up and overcome all differences. This is the only way to save Paola/Befana and the Christmas festival. But they have no idea how difficult this rescue mission is going to be.
