Synopsis
John Nicholas' dream of building "Fairyland Isle", whose admission is absolutely free to poor kids, seems not to be ready for the Christmas season opening until Santa 'Superman' Claus steps in to make it a reality. Open it does, but the dis-inherited heirs of the man who provided their playland provide their share of sabotage.
