Summary

Trying to raise cash to save her grandma's house, a 13-year-old girl stumbles onto a corrupt cop and takes off on a wild adventure in which she befriends a young pianist, fakes a kidnapping and lays a trap for the police. With her easy smile, big heart and boundless energy, 13-year-old Pik is the apple of her grandma's eye. Pik also adores her grandma and all the animals she tends to in her big house. But since grandma can't pay her debts, the idyll is about to end. Unless Pik finds a solution. Instead, she's hauled into the police station, where she accidentally sees Officer Kowatsch stowing drugs away big time. And he sees her... The chase is on! Quick of mind and of feet, Pik soon lands in an upper-class household pretending to be an exchange student. Amadeus, the family's only child and a budding pianist, sees through her but goes along for the ride - literally, since Pik drives off with him in a stolen car to escape from the evil Kowatsch. In hiding, they cook up a daring scheme: they pretend that Amadeus has been kidnapped and demand that the ransom money be flown to them via Grandma's homing pigeons. While this should help Pik save grandma's house, there's still the problem of the corrupt cop to be solved. But here too, Pik comes up with a brilliant - and risky - idea... Enchanting "Bibi Blocksberg" star Sidonie von Krosigk in a turbulent, upbeat family comedy.
