Mees has a problem. By accident he took his best friend's pocket knife home with him. Unfortunately he is too late to return it as the next day Tim moves house. All that Mees knows is that Tim has gone to Flevoland. His parents are tied up in their own lives and have no room for little Mees' problems. His mother is a world-famous singer and it seems Mees sees her more on TV than in real life. His father is under a lot of pressure acting as a housekeeper and as secretary for his popular wife. So little Mees must search alone for his friend.....Written by

When Mees asks his father about Almere, he tells his son it's the capital city of Flevoland. Although Almere is the largest city of the province of Flevoland, its actual capital city is Lelystad. See more »
This is a great movie for children. It has no violence in it at all and they can actually learn something from it. I would also recommend it to parents, because this is really the kind of movie you can watch with your children together. It shows not only the situation, but also how certain situations can be a problem to a (young) child. Olivier Tuinier is Holland's pride and probably our only worldwide known childactor, but he can easily compete with the American ones. Highly recommended movie!
