Ethiopian immigrant Samuel has the most ungrateful job in the world – he works as a Santa Claus in Finland and doesn’t speak the language. The father of the Perttilä family has made a crucial mistake, he's forgotten to order Santa for Christmas Eve. In the last minute he gets hold on the last free Santa - Samuel. At first the arrival of Samuel causes uncomfortably humorous situations but little by little the family starts to warm up and gives a newcomer a chance. But is that still a guarantee for a night to be a success?
