Thirteen-year-old Nellys holiday in Romania takes a very dramatic turn when she accidentally discovers her familys secret plan to relocate there. Running away to avoid the reality of her fate, she walks straight into the hands of kidnappers! Their leader is an unscrupulous German engineer, plotting to destroy her fathers energy project by forcing the family to leave the country. Nelly, in turn, befriends two young Roma siblings, Tibi and Roxana, who aid her in her adventurous escape. Together, they cross mountains and rivers, flee from a dungeon, board a moving train, borrow a car and become the heroes of the day!
NOTES TO PARENTS: In German and Romanian with English subtitles. The young characters in the film face danger. There is some drinking by adults, and a few mild swear words.
