Napoli is the city that most celebrates Christmas.
A nice and peaceful family is ready to celebrate a double Christmas: on the night of the 24th, the day that Jesus was born, another child will. Everyone gives a warm welcome to Franceschino, everyone except Rocco, who isn’t at all happy. He is the older brother of the newborn child, incredibly jealous, he suffers and sees his future darker than ever. He is convinced that the family’s new entry will steal him his parents’ love and will make him loose all the privileges of an only child; in his soul the two Christmases are marked by grief and resentment.
Meanwhile, in hell, the Devil, who has long been dreaming to impedì the birth of Jesus, orders to three little devils, fool and naughty, more stupid than devilish, to tempt someone on the Earth who already has evil thoughts, to then make him reach Galilee and make the evil spell.
Rocco is chosen: by now devoured by his jealousy, he hopes that his brother will never be born…
The three little devils, with their secret powers, manage to teach small Rocco the famous magic formula ‘OPOPOMOZ’ which will miraculously make him reach the Crib. And yet, who can imagine what will happen in such enchanted world…
