Germany’s beloved and unbeatable team of teenage detectives are back. When Alice (Flint) visits her friend Tarun (Fischer-Ortmann) on the coast of Northern Ireland for summer vacation, neither of them can imagine the adventure that awaits them. Tarun’s mother, Jaswinder (Abbas) is an oceanographer working on a secret project to reduce plastic waste in the ocean. Shortly after her top secret documents are stolen, Jaswinder disappears without a trace. While tracking down clues to hopefully find Jaswinder, Alice and Tarun come face to face with Robert Fleckmann (Ferch), a suspicious business executive who seems to know too much about Jaswinder’s research. Alice and Tarun suddenly find themselves tangled-up in a mystery that they can only solve with the help of their Peppercorn friends: Jonny (Pütz), Clarissa (Martz) and Hanna (Madita). Theede’s film brings the beloved German television series to the big screen for another family-friendly adventure filled with courage, humor, action, suspense and an inspiring cast of young characters, determined to change their world for the better.
