Synopsis

Twelve-year-old Mikey Collins, whose family struggle for money around Christmas time, is not a fan of the festive period. However, one day he finds two Santa Clauses in the woods, one of whom has just pulled off a bank heist and is on the run with the cash and the other who claims to have fallen out of his sleigh. Mikey has no time for this second Santa – he’s well past believing any of the Jingle Bells, spirit-of-the-season rubbish, even if his little brother Sean insists on treating the old man like a superstar. Instead, Mikey’s determined to get his hands on the bank-robber’s cash, convinced that this is the answer to giving his family the Christmas they all crave. But as Mikey risks everything for the loot, he comes to realise that maybe the spirit of Christmas is alive after all…

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
