Young Pietari lives with his stern reindeer-herding father Rauno in arctic Finland. On the eve of Christmas, an enormous excavation at a nearby mountain disturbs the locals and captures Pietari's curiosity. When Rauno's reindeer herd is mysteriously slain and the children in town go missing, Pietari realizes that the dig has unearthed the evil Santa Claus of local lore, who no one wants coming to town.
This is a really good film: Beautifully shot with a few twists and turns. This film gives us a whole new view of who Santa really is. It's not your standard warm and fuzzy kind of Christmas movie. Still, very interesting. ~Mike
