It's Christmas, carols are everywhere and a dragon has appeared in the city. Actually, it's more like a scared little dragon that wandered in from the mythical land of dragons. Nine-year-old Sarah befriends him, and Mortimer, who is the same age, joins the party, and together they turn this year's holiday of peace and tranquility upside down. The small town will remember their adventure for years to come. The dragon may be a special friend, but he's not a good fit for our world. He's still a clumsy youngster, he attracts attention and sometimes spits fire at the most inopportune times. Soon, the eyes of parents, police and TV crews are on the trio. All they can do is run away and help the dragon back home to his dragon land in the rocks. But the dragon must try to take flight and everything is heading for a truly fiery finale.
