BEANIE

Slobodan Maksimović

Slovenia, Luxembourg, Croatia, Slovakia, 2022 / 85 min / Slovene / Family

Beanie is the story of nine-year-old Erik, who lives in a youth home due to his problematic parents, and seven-year-old Lucy from a well-off family. Because it is Christmas, both children hope that their most secret wishes come true. Erik hopes to spend Christmas Eve with his parents, while Lucy wishes for a younger sister and a dog. By pure coincidence, they meet and experience a true Christmas adventure: in a single night, their wishes do indeed come true, though in a totally unexpected way.
