When all is quiet on the farm, when everyone is asleep, when the snow covers the ground and stars twinkle in the frosty sky and that's when Tomten wakes up. He watches over everyone on the farm without them ever knowing. But sometimes you can see his footprints in the snow. That's how you know he is real. Tomten has watched over this sleepy farm since the sunbeams were young. Since the first snow fell on the first winter. Since the first farmer built his first farmstead. He has seen generations come and go. But from where? Where do they come from, and where do they go? A deep riddle plays on Tomten's mind. One thing he knows for sure is that spring is coming; soon cows will be grazing in the fields and swallows singing in the trees again.
