Storyline

RICO (10) is an unusual boy. Sometimes he's being laughed at because he mixes things up in his head and doesn't know his left from his right. But Rico is brilliant at noticing the little things. Like a piece of pasta lying on the pavement. Or the strange on-goings in the apartment block where he lives. But it isn't until his new friends, the gifted but anxious OSKAR (8), is kidnapped that Rico gets the chance to put all his special skills - and tenacity - to the test.
