Niculin is a young donkey who spends his days in a meadow at the edge of a wood. One winter evening he is not fetched back by his farmer. The cold winter night is dark and threatening, and wolves lie in wait for him. An unexpected rescuer protects Niculin from the attacks of the wolves and leads him away into the forest. With his rescuer and an old man he not only finds a new task, but also a new home.
Niculin is a Christmas story for the entire family.
