Synopsis:
The story is about 9-year old Hendrick and Annie, and about their relationship. They have to find their own ways to overcome social prejudices before they can become true friends. Poverty and social injustice were part of childrens life in Pieter Bruegels world, and they still are in our time. Emotionally the story is about, how it feels to be treated unjustly, a feeling that most of the children experience in some stage of their lives. The Winter Ghost is, however, told as a classical childrens tale and it ends happily. There is humour and fantasy which add more dimensions to the basically quite realistic tale. All these elements make the film suitable for a wide audience, both children and family, and I believe that it works well as a holiday special.
