Tom is 10, Piet is 6 years old. Two inseparable brothers. Tom explains the world in his very own way, enabling his little brother to understand life`s secrets. He always turns things the way that they make sense – no matter if they are true or not, because in his eyes it is just important that they could be true.
Piet wants to have a little brother of his own now, too – to explain the world to him as well as his elder brother did. But he gets a hamster instead. Now the hamster has to listen to all of Piet's secrets - whether he likes or not.
One day Nineandahalf lies dead in his cage. Now Tom has to explain what “being dead” means? Where does the hamster will go to?
