Queen Klara reigns over the 12 months. Each month she must turn forward the year’s clock to lead the months through the year. But the Frosty Prince tries everything to destroy the Queen and prevent the year’s progression. Then it would remain February forever, dark and cold. Can he be stopped?
It is the 29th of February and Klara must move the year’s clock to March exactly at 6pm. But February, always harbouring the feeling of being disadvantaged, sides with the Frosty Prince. He calls him to the palace. Disguised as the compassionate monk Martin, the Prince weakens the Queen more and more each day. Yet the March Lady finds the recipe for a potion that has the power to protect against the influence of these frosty forces. She, cook Valentin and the ‘chicken girl’ Luise go on a quest for the potion’s ingredients and find the first three with help from June and the September Lady: violets, strawberries and an apple. But the fourth ingredient, the last flurry of snow, can only come from February ...
