The six part live action series tells the story of a friendship between four children with different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. There is the German boy, Moritz, Rüyet who has Turkish roots and whose family has lived in Germany for three generations, the Syrian refugee boy, Yassir, and the Aminata, a girl whose family has applied for asylum in Germany. It is difficult to be friends because of language barriers, but curiosity and empathy prevail over prejudices. However, the community of ten and eleven year olds bears a burden: Yassir and Aminata are threatened with deportation. The situation worsens when relatives of the children get involved in criminal circles out of need and carelessness. Beyond any romanticized concern, we experience the complex subject of refugees from a childlike and thus often unmasking narrative perspective in a touching story of friendship that transcends cultural circles.

In February 1942, the Luxembourgian priest, Henry Kremer, was unexpectedly sent home from the Dachau concentration camp to visit his mother in Luxembourg. Yet it soon became clear that the National Socialists wanted to use him for their purposes: the voice of the archdiocese of Luxembourg was used by Nazi Germany in its religious policy towards the Vatican.
