Little Misho and his father live in a big house with lots of lodgers. His mother left after a fight with his father, and ten days before Christmas the two men have to deal with life on their own. While his daddy is working the late-night shift at the hospital, the neighbors take turns looking after the boy. Misho imagines each of them as the fantasy hero of stories he makes up, as he devises various plans to get his mother to come back.
