Nine-year-old Oliver Winter sees through every fairytale he was ever told. Especially those about Christmas. A logical, methodical, scientific mind like his refuses to believe in the improbable legends of flying reindeer and elves at the North Pole.
But one night in January, when Oliver is amid the post-festive blues a mysterious stranger taps at his attic bedroom window and changes his life forever.
Recruited by Enzo, a top agent of the secret Order of Saint Nicholas Oliver begins to uncover the practical truth behind the folklore. Enzo reveals that his organisation have been using an algorithm to pick candidates for which they leave an inspiring gift. For centuries the Order has sought to encourage children to be the best version of themselves they could be. A doctor, a musician or maybe even… a scientist? Fascinated, Oliver swears to do good all year round – and agrees to monitoring via fantastic wearable tech – essentially the naughty or nice list in real-time - over wi-fi. Oliver’s twelve-month journey of discovery begins and he learns that Christmas is NOT just for Christmas.
But it seems that not all children have the right stuff. When Oliver’s older sister Megan falls under the spell of Arthur MacGregor, she learns of other youngsters whose experience with the Order has gone awry. Believing her little brother to be in danger, she teams up with MacGregor’s band of misfits, bent on exposing the Order of Saint Nick and uncovering truths the world may not be ready to learn.
Can Oliver and Enzo, rescue Megan from MacGregor’s evil influence before a twisting of the Order’s technology, places the entire world in jeopardy?
