Synopsis:
Felix is a rather odd six-year-old, who, much to his mother’s dismay, spends his time wearing a tiger costume and talking to his furry toys. One day Felix meets Sergeant Pepper, a solitary dog that has inherited its master’s villa and wealth. Sergeant Pepper is in mortal danger, for the dead man’s avaricious daughter, Corinna von Gordenthal, is furious at being shunned in her father’s will and wants to get rid of the dog. Felix and Sergeant Pepper hit it off straight away. Against the better judgment of Felix’ father Johnny, an unsuccessful inventor, the family lets the dog stay with them for a while. Felix is the happiest boy on earth. For the first time, he has a real friend. But his happiness is short-lived: Corinna von Gordenthal is hell-bent on finding Pepper and eventually manages to kidnap him. Felix and his sister Felicia launch an adventurous mission to save him - and put themselves in great danger. (Source: Nordic Filmdays Lübeck 2004)
