Synopsis:
Since their last big adventure, ten-year-old “lowly-gifted” Rico has been the best of friends with Oskar, who is two years younger but highly-gifted. Now Oskar is sleeping over at the Dorettis for the first time. To celebrate the occasion, first of all they are going to a pizzeria and afterwards to weekly bingo in the old people’s home, “Graue Hummeln”. This time Rico’s mother Tanja even wins two hangbags, which she sells on the Internet as usual. But Oskar can’t seem to share in Tanja’s pleasure? What’s the matter with him?

The next morning there is a bag containing Oskar’s clothes and a letter outside the door. His father writes that he needs some space. In his sadness, now Oskar is unable to go on keeping his secret: yesterday he noticed that Tanja won the bingo game even though she had marked the wrong numbers. Something is fishy there! Especially as the bags are not made of cheap plastic but expensive crocodile skin. Are Rico’s mother and the nasty bingo lady, Mrs. Wandbeck, up to something illegal? Of course the two boys have to get to the bottom of it all.

Marketing strategies:
This film is based on the second book of the popular “Rico und Oskar” series by prize-winning children’s and young people’s author Andreas Steinho?fel.
