Christmas brings little joy to the poor of Victorian London. Cold and hungry, with no gifts to exchange, they cannot afford to stop working, even on Christmas Day. Life is like that for the Little Matchgirl. She roams the streets selling matches for a penny a bundle, and those pennies have to support her and her ragged father. They have known better times; but her mother, a singer in the music halls, died when the Matchgirl was very young, and life has been harsh ever since.
Then one day, she strikes one of her matches to keep warm and discovers in the flame a magic world- a world where she can go anywhere, and anything is possible, even fall in love…
