A real castle for your new home – can you imagine anything cooler? Yeah, you can, thinks nine-year-old Max. Because Castle Geroldseck is a senior citizens‘ home full of wrinkly grans and gramps. But so his mom, a single parent geriatric nurse, can work night shifts as well, Max is now living in the Raven Tower. As the only kid among all these old …

But Max soon finds friends among the home’s elderly residents: actress Vera, soccer coach Horst and researcher Kilian, together better known as the Wild Bunch. Max also notices something weird’s going on in the old walls. There seems to be a mysterious thief up to no good, stealing valuables from the residents‘ rooms in broad daylight. Among the suspects is also Max’s mother, who is threatened with the sack. Max joins forces with Vera, Horst and Killian to bring the real thief to justice.
