The Polar Express tells the story of a young boy, who still believes in Santa Claus and the true spirit of Christmas. It is Christmas Eve and the boy, who is supposed to be asleep, is lying awake in his room, all excited and alert. He is waiting silently for the Santa Claus to come, not even moving for the fear of missing the ringing bells of Santa's sleigh. It's five minutes to midnight and suddenly, he starts hearing a thunderous roar. He looks outside his window and sees the most beautiful sight in the world.

A luminous black train is stopping right in front of his house, in the middle of the softly falling snowflakes. He rushes outside his house and comes across the train's conductor. The conductor asks him whether he is coming, to which the boy replies "Where". The conductor tells him that the train is 'The Polar Express', which will take him to the North Pole. The boy gladly gets into the train. After reaching the North Pole, he is asked by the Santa Claus to choose the first present of Christmas.

He chooses a bright silver bell from Santa's sleigh, which makes a beautiful sound. The Santa tells him that the bell represents the spirit of Christmas and only those who believe in Christmas can hear the sound of the bell. Thereafter, the Polar Express drops him to his house and he goes off to sleep in his bed. Years pass by and slowly; most of the people around him stop hearing the ringing of the bell. Of course, there are some who can still hear it ringing, those who still truly believe in the spirit of Christmas.
