It is Christmas Eve, a time of excitement and wonderment for the Silberhaus children. Presented with a magical Nutcracker from Drosselmayer, their loving godfather, young Marie and Fritz are destined for a night they will not soon forget. Whilst the rest of the household is asleep, Marie finds herself in the middle of a great battle for supremacy between an army of toy soldiers and a formidable platoon of mice commanded by the nefarious Mouse King.

A heart-warming tale about a young boy, his loveable calf Annabelle and their extraordinary adventures leading up to Christmas.
Farm boy Billy, a seven year-old who has not spoken a word since the trauma of a barn fire, receives a little calf for Christmas and it is not long before a delightful friendship develops. The two become inseparable and help each other with their respective foibles - Annabelle saves Billy from the neighbourhood bullies and Billy tries to fulfil Annabelle's dearest wish of learning to fly just like Santa's other magic reindeer.
When Christmas eve nears it is once more time for Santa Claus to magically grant all animals a speaking voice for just one night, and Annabelle makes a selfless decision to help out her troubled friend-in-need to overcome his fears and find his speaking voice once more.
With the magic of Christmas and the spirit of kindness Annabelle's Wish will not only fill your heart with hope and cheer it will make you believe.
