Luka and the Magical Theater
Norway in the beginning of the 20th century: The sweet boy Luka (11) muddles his way through the sludgy streets of Kristiania searching for food and money in order to help where he can in his small family, consisting only of himself and his father. He is constantly bullied by the notorious Vika Gang because of his walking disability but he mostly puts up a brave fight running away on his homemade crutches. Fleeing from his opponents, one day he escapes into the infamous carnival grounds looking for shelter but instead he ends up in a world full of magic and sparkle: the Tivoli theatre. Captured by the atmosphere of this beautiful place and by the open arms of both, the artists and the children living there, there is no turning back for Luka. As he gets to know that the theatre is at risk of being closed on Christmas Eve, he decides it must be saved – at any cost!
