Nils is a mischievous young tyke; instead of going to church with his parents, he'd much rather stay on the farm and torment the animals. However, one day, Nils comes across a pixie who takes exception to his cheeky demeanor and shrinks him down to miniature size. Now the tables are turned, and the farm animals begin to pick on Nils! Looking to escape, he hitches a ride on Morten the goose, and suddenly he's away with the wild geese as they migrate to Lapland. As the geese travel, Nils - along with his pet hamster Carrot - gets to see the sights and sounds of Sweden, whilst his plucky personality ensures that adventure is always close at hand.
