Birta is a strong and responsible girl who likes to play handball and plays the guitar in her free time. One day she overhears her mother’s concerns about their bad financial situation. She is afraid that her family will not be able to afford a proper Christmas. But Birta is not one to sit idly. Our little heroine immediately thinks of different adventures and creative ways of raising the money. That is not easy, however, when you are only eleven.
