In this adventurous family film, a bullied boy regains his confidence when he gets the chance to beat some real scoundrels when he teams up with his big heroes, St. Nicholas’s Petes.
The festive entry of St. Nicholas is overshadowed by a huge problem: due to a shortage of Petes, the St. Nicholas tradition threatens to disappear once and for all. So the saintly man decides to arrange a Pete audition: an official ‘Petes Day’. Sem seizes the opportunity and immediately writes a letter. If he can become a tough and strong Pete, his bullies will probably never pester him again. Meanwhile, a couple of scoundrels manage to sabotage Petes Day, in this family film.
