Charlie's Christmas

During a snowtorm an abandonned baby is found by a postman in the middle of the forest clutching a strange sleigh-bell.

The child, Charlie, grows up in a small orphanage with six other boys. He often confides in his fetish, the sleigh-bell, and tries to unravel the mystery of his origin. A few days before Christmas he accompanies the postman, his best friend to deliver children's letters to Father Christmas…
