To save their father, two sisters embark on an adventure across the Norwegian wilderness. In the process, they overcome their fears and discover their superpowers.

Nine-year-old Vega is more of a practical girl – in complete contrast to her little sister Billie, who prefers to lead her life magically. During a camping trip with their father, the father climbs trees, ventures across wobbly bridges and always knows exactly what to do. But when he then falls into a crevice and injures himself, the two sisters must find help by themselves. After some initial difficulties, Vega and Billie learn to take matters into their own hands and find their own path. They succeed with the help of a little magic, courtesy of Billie's unicorn totem 'Tottori', and some logic, thanks to Vega's passion for instruction manuals. By bravely facing their fears, they discover their superpowers and the strength of their familial bonds.The school class screening on 15 November at the Karlstorkino will also be translated live into German Sign Language (DGS).
This performance is being held in cooperation with the municipal commissioner for the disabled of the city of Heidelberg. We thank them for their support.
