Unlike the traditional Santa Claus myth, "Kringle" is a coming-of-age story about an orphan who becomes a force for good in a dark and violent time. It is a tale of fantasy, of goblins, elves, and flying reindeer -- and of a boy from the humblest beginnings who fulfills his destiny. Our tale begins in 500 A.D., when goblins kidnapped human children and set them to work in underground mines. Kringle is one such child... until he discovers his mission -- to free children from enslavement. His legend lives on today, as he travels the earth every Christmas Eve to quell the goblins once more.
