Trivia

The first edition of the soundtrack 33 rpm output in France was quickly withdrawn from sale because Karen Cheryl had not asked permission from her producer (Ibach) to appear in the film or sing for the soundtrack. The disc was reissued with the same cover but with a new singer: Tilda (known then as the Tilda Rejwan). In Quebec, Nathalie Simard dubbed over the songs. See more »

A young boy's only wish for Christmas is his parents.

A young boy tells his teacher that all he wants for christmas is his mother and father, who are political prisoners in Africa.... (can't tell the story).. Gets the opportunity to confront Santa, and ask him to free his parents. This film is french (dubbed English), that has a great story, nice soundtrack, and an ending that will bring tears to your eyes (If you are a compassionate person.) Some Parts are funny! Great musical soundtrack! (speaking for the dubbed version).
