Plot synopsis
Hans and Gerda love each other like brother and sister but during a storm one winter's day, a splinter of the Snow Queen's evil mirror gets into Hans' eye and hardens his heart. He can no longer feel any emotion. Irresistibly drawn to the Snow Queen, he follows her on his sled to her realm. Refusing to believe Hans dead, Gerda goes after him...
