Although he is still young, Winnetou (12) already considers himself a great warrior and wants to prove this to his father. When his people are threatened by a famine, Winnetou sees his chance to show his courage. He receives support from his sister and a boy from the town who is supposed to be his enemy.

YOUNG WINNETOU AND THE LOST BUFFALOS is a Karl May hero-inspired adventure and comes from the producers of successful family series like THE WILD SOCCER BUNCH or WINDSTORM. The main role is played by rising star Mika Ullritz (SUCK ME SHAKESPEER 3) and lets us imagine what Winnetou might have been like in his younger days.
