Antonella lives in Italy, in a little village nestled at the foot of mountains next to the sea, and the only thing she really wants for Christmas is a pair of red roller skates. She isn't quite sure, though, how to let Santa know. In the end, she ties her letter to Santa to a balloon, and hopes it will deliver her wish.

The balloon lands in a schoolyard in Hungary and the children there read Antonella's letter, and work to fulfill her dream. Santa himself may not have delivered the skates to Antonella, but he was definitely in the schoolyard in Hungary, in the little village in all of us.
