A tale of mysterious magical rain boots that will grant the wearer's greatest wish. Two meddlesome fairies wonder whether human beings can really know what brings happiness, so they slip the magical goloshes onto the feet of four unsuspecting children who think they know what they want. This modern-day version of the original Goloshes of Fortune is infused with street dancing, slang, Danish dialogue (which is taught to the audience), and, of course, a pair of yellow Wellingtons.
