The movie is set in the 19th century somewhere in Norway where Jasper is a lazy and spoiled son of the Royal Postmaster General. His father gets him enrolled in the postman training academy to make his life more organized and better. Jesper underperforms deliberately and compels his father to send him to a small town in the North called Smeerensburg. There, he has to post six-thousand letters within a year, and if he fails to complete the task, he will not have any share in the family’s fortune. Upon his arrival to the town, he meets a sarcastic ferryman named Mogens and a bitter teacher-turned-fishmonger named Alva. They inform him about the Ellingboes and the Krums who hate each other and express their hatred toward each other most of the time.
Jesper looks for people who want to post letters and finds a lumberman living in isolation outside the town. He discovers that Klaus has a house full of handmade toys but gets terrified of his appearance. Klaus asks Jesper to find the boy in a drawing left by him so that he can deliver a toy to cheer him up. This act of Klaus turns around the history of the town and every boy in Smeerensburg starts going to school so that they can learn to read and write letters to Klaus. During all this, Jesper also learns the history of the hatred between the Krums and the Ellingboes. The movie is best for adults and kids to help them learn more about the Christmas spirit.
