By order of the king, the father of young Nikolas sets out on a journey to find a legendary place where the elves dwell, known as Elfhelm. It is said that this elven village can only be seen by those who truly believe in it. When his father does not return, Nikolas takes it upon himself to venture into the frigid and snowy north to find him and fulfill the king’s edict to bring back a spark of magic and give hope to the kingdom. He is accompanied on this quest by his pet mouse Miika and a stubborn reindeer named Blitzen. On their way to Elfhelm, this brave little crew encounter all manner of obstacles and dangers, from dangerous mountains to a monstrous troll.
Nikolas’ journey to Elfhelm is just the beginning. On the one hand, it seems humans aren’t allowed inside the village, and he’s immediately thrown in jail along with a few other misfits, including a goblin who can only tell the truth.
