It is a German-Dutch-Swedish co-production between award-winning Amsterdam-based studio Submarine (Where is Anne Franke), Alexandra Schatz Filmproduktion in Germany and Sweden’s Slugger Film (Molly Monster). Written by the acclaimed Are Andrea Brücken and directed by Slugger Film’s Michael Ekblad.

He lives with his loving family at the edge of town and goes to kindergarten where he plays with his friends from the neighbourhood. Little Charlie is used to having his parents’ full attention however, his life is about to change with the arrival of his baby sister Clara, which leads to unexpected adventures with his best friends.
