Ein Schneemann für Afrika

Ein Schneemann für Afrika

DDR 1977, Spielfilm

Inhalt

The little African girl Asina is eagerly waiting for her new friend Karli. Karli is a young sailor from Rostock who has promised her a gift on his next arrival in Coccatuttibana. Karli keeps his promise and smuggles a stowaway onboard the “MS Wismar”. Kasimir, a snowman, finds shelter in a cooling chamber. Although the journey turns out to be turbulent, Karli and Kasimir manage to arrive in Africa in good health. Asina is very excited about her extraordinary present. To prevent the snowman from the African sun, however, she sends him on another cargo ship journey. This time his destination is the land of the Eskimos.
