SynopsisInformationCast & CrewIMDB link

Casper is looking forward to the annual Winter Vacation, because his whole family will be heading South!

But then his parents quarrel, and cancel the trip.

Casper is secretly scared his parents are going to get divorced, but Emma cheers him up, inviting him on a ski trip with her Grandpa and his partner, Esther. At Esther’s cabin the two of them play games in the snow and have great time together, and soon get to know a boy their own age called Peter, who is really good at skiing. Well, actually, he’s good at everything!

Casper soon comes to reckon that Emma is far too keen on Peter, and resolves to show her that he too is good at things. But can he actually win Emma back this way?
