A beautiful and imaginative film, perfect for Christmas or, in Spain, for January 6 when children traditionally write their letter to three Kings of the East to send their list of presents. Young Hector is travelling with his parents from Barcelona to France to visit his grandmother and is stranded on a remote train station. It is no ordinary place as the minutes and the hours on the platform clock start to disappear and Hector is left with a mysterious family that will help him break the spell prompted by his wish to the Kings. The children will have to overcome various challenges in a spellbound world combining ballet and song. Director Rosa Verges explains that she originally intended to make a film for children and ended up making a film with children (DVD extras). The DVD can be viewed in the original Catalan or dubbed Castilian version.
