Kids Euro Festival: Fairy Tales for Emma

Please note that this film is in Czech with English subtitles.


One month before Christmas, a call changes one man's life forever. Peter Miller has been working for the Immigration Office in London for many years, estranged from his family. Out of the blue, a call from a social worker in Prague informs him that he has been identified as the father of an eight-year-old child named Emma, whose mother has been in a serious car accident. Peter can't believe it, but what if Emma really is his daughter? In Prague, he meets Marie, a hotel manager consumed by her job. She offers her help during a critical time. So begins the game of love... Will this be a "fairy tale" ending after all?
