The great journey to the Bethlehem star!
30 November 2004 | by anti_kaninkokerSee all my reviews

The norwegian nations favorit Christmas movie!

Young Sonja travels around with a group of jokers, when they arrive in a town, where there only grief and sorrow. The King has cast a spell on the Bethlehem star, so it no longer shines... Many years ago, on Christmas eve, hes only daughter went into the forest, and has never been found. He also has a cousin that is a count.

Sonja tells the king that she will find the star, and go into the forests where she also meets father Christmas, to find the star!

Does she find it? Well, there only one way to find out! Follow Sonja, on her trip to the Bethlehem star, and see for yourself:)
