While Sinterklaas travels from Spain to Antwerp by steamboat, loyal wrangler Ramon Iglesias travels by land to safeguard his horse from seasickness. On the road, they’re captured by Tikkelotje, who desperately tries to use Ramon’s musical talent in a new act in order to reinvigorate her underperforming theatre. Professor Van den Uytleg and Conchita deploy their carrier pigeons and Zwarte Piet also takes action to find Ramon and his horse. However, the quest is no smooth sailing. One by one the heroes are trapped and captured by Tikkelotje. Sinterklaas’ only option is to set off by himself. Will he manage to retrieve his friends and free them? The first Flemish cinema film about Sinterklaas – directed by Stijn Coninx, after a scenario by Hugo Matthysen – was brought to life by a top cast, including Jan Decleir, Frans Van Der Aa, Pieter Embrechts, Els Dottermans, Lucas Van den Eynde, Adriaan Van den Hoof, Evelien Bosmans, Matteo Simoni, Tom Van Dyck and Warre Borgmans.
