One of the most popular Czech ‘Christmas fairy tale’ comedies for the whole family that won several festival awards at the Czech Lions Film Awards. Sequel to the fairy tale Angel of the Lord, the movie tells a story about the angel Petronel who works at Heaven’s Door but is convinced that he deserves a better job. His eternal tempter, the devil Uriah, starts to provoke him. Uriah convinces Petronel to pick an Apple from the Tree of Knowledge so that he will know what only God knows and the way to well-deserved recognition will be free. Petronel and Uriah then proceed to argue about the Apple and the result is catastrophic. The precious fruit falls all the way down to the Earth.
The confused angel and his friend, the devil-tempter, have to quickly enter the human world, find the Apple of Knowledge and bring it back. The night before Saint Nicolas’s Day they become tangled up in a peculiar whirl. The duo searches for the Apple to return it to where it belongs and unfolds into an often hilarious adventure whilst enduring dangerous and unpredictable setups. After a row of both human and divine trials, our heroes discover that the true route to knowledge lies in knowing one’s own self, in discovering the power of friendship, love and the will to forgive.
