Elegant, silent and yet full of fantastic surprises - Pan Tau is no ordinary school mascot. Whenever a child at Westpark School needs help, he steps in with a smile - and incredible alien magic powers. With the ability to make bathtubs fly, or to beam you into your favorite novel, this is the invisible friend that everyone wants. But the real heroes are the girls and boys. Thanks to Pan Tau, they discover their own superpowers: by developing courage, cleverness, self-confidence and friendship, they master every challenge in the end and thus grow beyond themselves.

When Christian moves in with Franzi, a single mother of two boys, challenges and situational comedy are inevitable because he is a drag queen. Christian sees himself more as a woman than a man, Franzi tries to be both father and mother and her two carefree teenage sons want to find out who they are and where their place is in life. This new family unit is a turbulent mixture that makes us laugh and think about identity, acceptance and tolerance.

Living at the harbor docks is tough: a ruthless gang of rats has the harbour under its strict control. Only the Muscleteers dare to stand up to them with magnificent missions and life-saving rescues. The four stay true to their oath: all for one, one for all.
