Tomorrow Comes the Christmas Elf

A fantastical tale about the small things that make Christmas truly special.
This Christmas is going to be like none before – the Christmas Elf, Linus, and Amelie are certain about it! The former, because he finally managed to persuade Santa to let him deliver the presents for once, something he has dreamed about for a long time. The latter, because they find themselves in a newly established patchwork family and are all but amused of having to celebrate together and without the other halves of their families at that.
What they didn’t expect is to be teaming up! However, the Christmas Elf lost all the presents and is in dire need of help. Together with Linus’ dog Curve, they set out to find them – and meet a very curi-ous being with a compelling offer: There might be a big surprise waiting for Linus and Amelie, if they manage to agree on something for once … Could this Christmas actually be saved?
