Mika and Dana are an invincible team. His idiosyncrasies caused by Asperger-Syndrome seem to hardly make an impression on the supposed Indian Maharaja’s daughter, apart from Mika’s love for mathematics, perhaps. When one day a racehorse suddenly appears on the heavily indebted neighbor’s balcony, the peace and quiet in the council house becomes a thing of the past. From then on it’s a matter of outfoxing debt collectors and the horse butcher alike. A star-studded children’s film, and a refreshing statement about friendship with no trace of moralism.
