On Christmas Eve, while she babysits the kids for their beleaguered father, Ruth regales them with the ancient story of Nikolas (Henry Lawfull), a boy who channels his own pain into a sense of purpose as he sets out to find the fabled town of Elfhelm against all odds. With just his pet mouse and a friendly reindeer at his side, little Nikolas braves the wintry abyss to find the place that once brought his mother so much joy, all in hopes of saving his father and his ailing kingdom. But even Elfhelm is suffering, and it's up to Nikolas to rekindle joy in all of the land, even as he grapples with his own grief. We don't get to know much about how these three children have lost their mother, but it's clear that they've been overcome with grief and also have a bit of separation anxiety from their father as a result of their loss. (Consider the scene when they desperately make sure that Nikolas will reunite with his own dad in the Christmas tale before Aunt Ruth goes any further. Gulp!) Wisely, Ruth's story doesn't dwell too much on the details of Nikolas' mother's demise, but instead, it includes a lot of details about how much everyone loves and misses her. Her impact on Elfhelm is immense, and she even makes the meanie "Mother" elf happy and sappy.
