What Pigtail wants most of all is to learn to ice skate. However, shortly before the Christmas Pigtail’s baby brother appears to the world and turns everything upside down. Pigtail’s parents are fully occupied with him and her Grandma who has specially arrived from the countryside doesn’t know how to skate nor is any good at reading good-night-tales. So Pigtail together with her imaginary friend, Mr. Sleeplessness, comes up with a plan to send Grandma and Baby Brother to the Moon in order to save the holidays and win back parents attention.
