Peter Lender, a young boy is setting up all kinds of traps in the house and experiments on them. In their house all kinds of objects disappear and Peter finds out the reason for. The cracks between the walls and the floor are the home of the Borrower family, tiny gnomes about three inches tall who live according to principles: never to be watched by men and never to borrow more than they really need. When the Lender's have to leave their house Peter helps his new friends to move to their new home.

An amusing fantasyfilm for kids and families.
