Hilja is an energetic, curious and cheeky seven-year-old girl who lives in the countryside in a wooden house that always needs some fixing. She loves to climb trees, run around, go fishing and make new friends.
Hilja has only seen her grandma in an old photograph. However, there are three ladies in the neighborhood who are making sure that Hilja doesn’t have just one grandma but three!

Hilja’s sister Veini claims that Christmas is just a publicity trick, but Hilja decides to prove that Christmas is real and magical.
