In the village, flowers are still growing, but the days are growing shorter as chubby-cheeked Mr. Winter creeps into town. His chilly breath is enough to put a layer of ice on all the plants. But the sun slowly regains its power and after a long attempt at resistance, Mr. Winter must admit defeat. He retreats to the cold realms of year-round ice and snow, where the penguins are excited to have a new friend to play with.
This children's film, which combines multiple animation techniques, is based on the story "Das Sternenschiff" ("The Starry Ship") by Anne Geelhaar.
