Based on the childrens story by Selma Lagerlef.
This is the story of an annoying little lad that tortures the animals in his fathers farm. One day he captures a leprechaun which he starts to toy with. The leprechaun escapes him and puts a curse on the boy which gets turned into a dwarf. To escape the anger of the farm animals, he leaves with a flock of wild geese and travels with them. This is how the series begins... As it progresses the boy begins to discover a new greater world which moulds him into a new person.
