Based on the children's book classic by Erich Kästner (6+)

For the first time Emil Tischbein is allowed to travel alone to Berlin. His smart cousin Pony Hütchen and his grandmother await him in vain at the Friedrichstraße train station. For Emil is already engaged in an exciting chase. Across the big city, always after the creep Grundeis, who stole his money in the train. Fortunately, he soon gets support: from Gustav with the horn and his boys.
