Silverbell and Santa on Christmas Eve

Dasher is a brave little doe with a wish in her heart. She spends her days with her family under the hot sun in a traveling circus, but she longs for a different life - one in which her hooves tread in soft, cold snow under the glow of the North Star.

And one day, when the opportunity arises, Dasher seizes her destiny and takes off in pursuit of the life she wants to live. It's not too long before she meets a nice man in a red suit with a horse-drawn sleigh. And soon, with the help of a powerful wish, Christmas will never be the same.
