A heartwarming story about 2 kids who find a bank robber's loot in the attic of their apartment block. Instead of telling someone or spending it on themselves (like I suppose most kids would), they go around buying presents for their neighbours, whether they are needy or because they've lost something they loved. When the robber discovers they have taken his loot, he gives them an ultimatum - return the money or else. But the boys are in a dilemma, they wanted to give away all the remaining money to a neighbour who needs it for a life-saving operation for their daughter. And as you would expect, they ignore the danger to themselves and give the money away anyway. What follows are events which lead eventually to the arrest of the robber and his accomplice (of course), and the exoneration of the kids and a reward as well. The acting isn't outstanding, but given that this a supposed to be family movie, the kids' performance are to be commended. Plot is a bit thin and mostly predictable, but overall, a gentle comedy for the family to be enjoyed on a warm summer night.
