It's vacation. 12-year-olds Maja, Rikke and Ohna have big ambitions to not lift a finger this summer, but then the police find drugs hidden in the restaurant. Saigon House is closed and Ohna's big brother gets arrested.The girls know that he is innocent but he won't get out of jail before the drug league is exposed. It's a case for the Asphalt Angels but soon they end up right in the middle of a drama of human trafficking, car chases, karate kicks and romance. Together the three girls balance both on high fences and the edge of the law to resolve the situation. Along the way, they enjoy the support of the good friende Orpham, grandmother Noi and Fredriksen - a dog that thinks it is human. On with the sunglasses! There is action, excitement and blazing heat in the center of Oslo!
