(Die Vorstadtkrokodile)

Ten-year-old Hannes lives with his single mom. His greatest dream is to become a member of “The Crocodiles” – the coolest gang in the world. To enter the group, he must accept a dare that turns out completely wrong. He’s saved in extremis by Kai, a boy in a wheelchair. Kai desperately wants to be a Crocodile too, but the other kids just make fun of him. One night, Kai witnesses a burglary and suddenly the gang is interested in him after all. He will help the gang in exchange of their acceptance. With Kai’s help and their typical resourcefulness, courage, and ingenuity, the Crocodiles set about cracking the case and taking on the dangerous gang of burglars….


“The themes addressed – friendships, budding infatuation, uncertainty… appeal to the target group”
