Sammy’s multi-talented hamster Raffi gets kidnapped after coming home from surgery. Raffi was a gift from Sammy’s father, who is “away” for a while, and is very dear to Sammy. He is devastated when his hamster is stolen and takes on finding his treasured friend on his own, ending up in an epic journey through Hamburg, with both Sammy and Raffi taking on a multitude of foes along the way, including the nasty criminal Rocky who needs a long lesson on how to treat others.
Based on the popular book of the same name by Arend Agthe and Bettina Kupfer, also the Director and Writers of the film.
*Advisory: Limited coarse language, a bumbling criminal, and a few suspenseful moments leading up to a happy hamster rescue!
