Young reindeer Niko is being raised by his single mother, but he knows his Dad is a member of Santa's legendary Flying Forces - the coolest reindeers around! He has never met his Daddy, though, and everybody laughs at his attempts to fly, since he keeps on falling down. When a herd of hungry wolves, led by the evil Black Wolf, attacks the reindeer herd, Niko feels responsible and heads off on a desperate, dangerous mission through icy blizzards and across wild terrain to find his father. Accompanied by Julius, a clumsy flying squirrel, who has nurtured the boy since he was a baby, they save the life of sassy young singing weasel Wilma...
This fun-filled fairy-tale for the whole family about reindeer Niko and his friends was released successfully all over the world.
