Description: The sale of Christmas tags is the basis for the establishment and operation of the Christmas tag homes around Denmark. The purpose of the homes is to house and help vulnerable and particularly needy children. Many of the Christmas tag children come from the big cities. Funds may be tight here, and the children may be left to fend for themselves and life in the wretched backyards. At the Christmas mark homes, they can receive care, fresh air and get back to work after illness. The film follows daily life at the various Christmas mark homes in Denmark: Lindersvold in Faxe, the Mørkøv home in Northwest Zealand, Fjordmark by Flensborg Fjord, Holbølls Minde by Svendborg, the Hobro home by Mariager Fjord and the Christmas mark home in Juelsminde.
