Taxi driver Marcel’s big moment has arrived. Every year, he looks forward to the day he can transform into Saint Nicholas and set out with mitre and staff. The fairy tale demands a thorough preparation.

All year round, taxi driver Marcel looks forward to the moment when he can transform into his alter ego: Saint Nicholas. In the role of this saintly figure, he spreads joy and presents in Den Helder. At a time when it is increasingly complicated to preserve a fairy tale, the question is whether Marcel will manage to make everybody believe in the illusion again. Not only his own preparation is important; he also instructs his team of Petes to the last detail.
