Koos, who is nearly eight, wants to look like his tall, blond father. But that's not easy since Koos is adopted from Peru, what makes him small and dark. When he sees a Peruvian boy making strange music in front of the supermarket he finds out that he is originally an Indian. From that moment on he does everything, despite his Dutch parents, to be a worthy Indian.

Delivery scheduled for May 2009.

Marketing strategies:
