In the small fictional Norwegian town Skogli, a puzzle of characters intersects with each other in different stories. These characters represent a wide range of ages and social classes, blending humor and tragedy, tenderness and desperation; but always open for forgiveness and hope. The stories bring forward the theme of living together in all aspects and it explores love at any age and in all its phases, from giving birth to dying. Home for Christmas is a modern Christmas Carol based on a selection of short stories from the Norwegian author Levi Henriksen’s collection “Only Soft Presents Under the Tree”.
