Santa doesn’t want to retire, but rules are rules and he must train someone to replace him. The lucky winner, to be picked out of millions of children, must be named Nicholas, be an orphan and have a pure heart.
On the other side of the planet, there is a little boy who is a perfect match, but his lack of self-confidence and fear of heights make him a poor contestant. Will Santa agree to step down and help his apprentice take his place?
Santa’s Apprentice has won the special UNICEF award at the Annecy International Animation Festival in France. This prestigious award recognises the best animation which highlights the goals of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
