Christmas is just around the corner in the little village Borington and everyone is preparing for the holidays – everyone except for eleven-year-old refugee Sara (Isha Zainab Khan). Afraid of having to leave the country, she constantly hides from the police and takes refuge in vacant houses. One day, everything changes when she has an incredible encounter: A shy animal has lost its way and crashes into the very same house. She can hardly believe her own eyes when she realizes – it is a dragon.
When the aspiring YouTube star Mortimer (Iver Aunbu Sandemose) comes to his neighbor’s house and finds them, Sara and her new friend seem to be in danger… Can the three outsiders overcome their fears and team up?
Christmas is around the corner in the Norwegian village of Borington. Everyone is preparing for the holidays, except for refugee Sara. When she and the aspiring Youtuber Mortimer discover a dragon, an adventure that will change them forever starts to unfold.
