Karl works in seclusion at the luggage office of a dreary railway station. It is Christmas Eve. A package that has been left behind leads him shortly before closing time to a fairytale house in the middle of nowhere. Mrs. Wilms, a lovely old lady, is already waiting for him there. Together with the angel Sarah she makes sure that Karl will remain unforgettable this night.
