The residents of Moss Street live in pure harmony, all supporting, appreciating, and looking out for one another. But when a new family moves in – the scooter-boy Donald, his little brother Kevin, their mom Inna, and their dad Guidao – strange things start to happen. The minks owned by the oldest man on the street, Papa Padrik, are all suddenly set free. A few days later, the tires of the Tammik family’s bright red Lexus are slashed. Fifth-graders Marta and Joseph decide to band together and get to the bottom of things. Yet the investigation also brings quite many developments in the kids’ own lives along the way…
