A true story that never happened. According to the press release, Winterland is a film. But in reality, it is a (egomaniac?) portrait of it`s creator, Dick Tuinder, who stands to loose control over his project. When his actors mysteriously disappear from the set, he has to tap into all his resources to conjure everything back: walking trees, talking stones, flying eyes, a wall that seperates the real from the virtual world, just to mention a few ingredients of the magic potion. And Sally Dewinter. An eleven year old animated figure who has become lost in 3-D. Her only travel companion is a suitcase. Whatever is in the suitcase is a secret. Such a big secret, that even the girl doesn`t know. Sally: "It`s the best kept secret in the world." In the end, all will end well. How the plot unravels is not important. For according to the press release, Winterland is a film in which everything what you have seen is really true, but never happened.
