Synopsis

Every day on the beach at Coccatuttibana, a little African girl named Asina stands and waits for the Wismar. Her friend Karli, a young sailor from Rostock, will be on this ship and he has promised to bring her something special which does not exist in Africa. Finally the day arrives, and Asina gets her present – a talking snowman! But the cool man cannot survive the African sun for long, so Asina and Karli need to come up with a plan.
