The snowman was sad. It hadn't snowed in the snowman's little globe for ages. His music was out of tune, and he had not been enjoyed or played with for a long time. Then a golden angel on top of the clock grants him one hour of freedom from his globe. Eagerly, the snowman heads for the street where he spends some enchanting time dancing with a music box ballerina. Then he scurries back to his snow globe, yearning to be with her forever. Will their dream come true?
