“Rare Exports is an unexpectedly delightful crossbreed of deadpan comedy and Christmas horror.”

At A Glance: In the depths of the Koratunturi Mountains lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. It’s time to dig it up! This Christmas everyone will believe in Santa Clause…
A group of local reindeer herders whose Christmas is disturbed by excavations on the mountain. A scientist has ordered a team of workers to dig open what he calls “the largest burial mound in the world”. An explosive used by the team uncovers what is referred to as a “sacred grave”. However, the occupant of the grave is still alive. Soon, the reindeer important to the local people are mysteriously killed, and children and supplies begin to disappear from the town. It emerges that the occupant is the source of the original Santa Claus myth; a supernatural being who, rather than rewarding good children, punishes the naughty. One family, however, manages to catch the culprit in a trap, and plans to sell it to the scientist to cover the losses caused by his excavation.
