When she discovers that a real reindeer has fallen into ill health, she nurses it back to its prime, believing it is the actual Prancer, so she can return it to Santa that Prancer might pull his sleigh.
Christmas fantasy about a nine-year-old, motherless girl, living with her dad on a failing farm, who discovers a wounded reindeer and, believing it to be the real Prancer, one of Santa's reindeer, nurses it back to health.
