A fir tree is chopped down in the snowy forest. It is supposed to be put up as a splendid Christmas tree at the Christmas market. But in the tree there lives a little screech-owl who now finds itself travelling to the big city along with the tree. When they reach their destination, Mario the forester discovers the little screech-owl hiding in the branches, completely exhausted by its long and scary journey. Happily, Mario’s daughter Emilia lovingly nurses the little Christmas miracle back to full strength, whereupon they release it back into the magical winter forest.
