Finn (10) feels lonely and forgotten. Since his parents’ divorce, he travels back and forth between his two homes by train. On his first unaccompanied journey, he is robbed by a man on the train and later meets the energetic 12-year-old Jola by chance. A wild ride on a stolen tractor to the Baltic Sea begins as they are searched for by the police. They overcome dangerous traps, meet many interesting people and, above all, get to know themselves.
