The Amazing Wiplala
Eight-year-old Sammy has a hamster named Raffi. The little rodent has some very special talents – not only can he kick goals with a football but he can also sniff smuggled goods far better than a tracker dog. One day, however, it turns out that Raffi has a heart disease which requires operation. It gets even worse when the hamster suddenly disappears! Sammy is left alone with his troubles. Neither his mother, nor sister have the time to help search for Raffi, and his father is all the way in Afghanistan for work. But the boy doesn’t give up and sets out on a quest to rescue his friend.
