Terkel is an ordinary schoolboy in sixth grade, with ordinary bracers living an ordinary Danish school life. Together with the kind temporary teacher Gunnar Bjerre he goes on a cottage trip. But on the way to find the multi colored newt he finds himself facing a psychopatic murderer.

The Danish comedian Anders Matthesen’s succesful radio show has been transformed into a 3D animation film playing with all the traditions from thrillers and scary movies.

A film that, with its origins in today's media and with the addition of spicy irony, becomes a film that is fresh, innovative and straight forward. An appropriate,youthful provocation and agitation of adults. (Jury BUFF Malmö 2005)
