Synopsis:
George, Julian, Dick, Anne and Timmy the dog are the Famous Five. They are spending their first summer holidays together and are already off on an exciting adventure! Their very first trip to the beach and they find not only an old smugglers' cave but also make a thrilling discovery: George's father Quentin, a famous inventor, is going to be kidnapped!

The professor has established a laboratory on rocky Kirrin Island and is working on a brand new and highly clever way of creating energy. Somebody has clearly got their evil eyes on his valuable research results! But neither police officers Peters and Hansen nor George's mother Fanny believe the children.

One evening, when Quentin no longer gives the previously agreed light signal from the island, the five friends have no option but to set out alone on the dangerous hunt for the gangsters to save Quentin. The trail leads them to very suspicious wildlife photographers and a mysterious tourist, who claims to be a government agent. The children stumble across a secret passage that runs beneath the sea and uncover a treacherous plot that takes their very breath away.
