Ena and Ana receive a mission from their neighbours to look after their brother, the absentminded inventor Gadgetus. The girls discover the wonders of Gadgetus’ farm, which soon faces demolition because it stands right at the sight of a new freeway. In order to save it, our heroines first have to learn about the world of dreams in order to ask for help inside it. Their adventure will involve one of Gadgetus’ inventions, a miniature pig and the local residents. The film is based on a popular novel by author Marjatta Kurenniemi and it is a tale of the exciting moments of childhood without parent supervision and summer, the time when everything seems possible.
