In the ruins of the city, destroyed by the war, a small boy survives. He is hiding from fighting machines and collecting old broken toys that he carries to his shelter to repair them. They replace his friends and family. One day he finds a Christmas gift and runs away with him to the mound of the fairgrounds. The Christmas ballad is a story of a powerful magic of children's games, that breaks the walls of hatred and puts together apparent enemies. The Christmas Ballad based on the very last script by Bretislav Pojar.
