Summary note: Journey to Germany to visit 8-year-old Sophia, who lives with her family in a tiny town near Frankfurt. We see Sophia at school and at her guitar lesson, follow her to a fundraiser for a classmate, meet the chickens and calves she helps tend, attend a concert where her sister sings in a gospel choir, and walk around charming Marburg, setting for many of Grimm's fairy tales. Ten-year-old Ole enjoys a Boy Scout cookout in a landfill-turned-park, dresses up like Dracula to "trick or treat" with friends in his neighborhood, practices with his handball team and takes care of his tortoises. We sit in on his older brother's drum lesson, follow his mother as she teaches at an animal museum, and go sight seeing with the family in downtown Berlin, where they live.
