Synopsis

Christmas Eve: While the world is celebrating the feast of love three people are particularly lonely. As he does not want to be alone on this day, Richard wanders around the city in a Santa Claus costume to be Father Christmas for the children of strangers - all for free. Sasha is a very successful and beloved music star. Though she is loved by her fans she has no true friends and family to spend Christmas with. Ivan, a Russian hitman, has just finished his last job of the year. After months of loneliness he slips up into a dangerous situation when he gets involved with a traveling stranger.
After a momentous shoot-out in a hotel room some bullets make their way to the neighboring room...and fate takes its course.

The Night Father Christmas Died is a modern fairy tale filled with drama, humor, action and magic.
