12-year-old Emily is holidaying with her friend Tarun in Northern Ireland when a simple summer turns into a big adventure! Tarun's mother Jaswinder, an oceanographer, is attacked by a thief: her top secret files are in danger and she doesn’t seem to be telling the kids the whole truth. Back in Germany, there is a mysterious encounter at the Baltic Sea with a waste handler who seems to know more about her research than she realized. Events escalate when Jaswinder vanishes from the research ship one night. The kids realize fast that more than one person has good reason to kidnap her. Even the local fishermen have few good words to say about her. And then there are also Jaswinder's two research assistants, who have been behaving very strangely lately.

Based on the famous German TV-series "The Peppercorns".
