Synopsis: In this Finnish film, a young boy named Pietari (Onni Tommila) and his friend Juuso (Ilmari Jarvenpaa) think a secret mountain drilling project near their home in northern Finland has uncovered the tomb of Santa Claus. However, this is a monstrous, evil Santa, much unlike the cheery St. Nick of legend.

In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts.
