Twelve-year-old Sue is an unassuming loner and a big fan of comic books and superheroes. But never in her wildest dreams could she have imagined possessing superpowers herself. A mishap in her mother’s laboratory exposes her to a mysterious substance called NT26D, suddenly giving her the ability to render herself invisible. When her mother is kidnapped, Sue must put her superpowers to the test. She and her new freinds, resourceful App and bicycle wizard Tobi, go in search of clues. But to rescue her mother from the forces of evil, the disparate friends must combine their strengths, uncover a conspiracy, and bring the truth to light. This exiting science-fiction adventure is the first German children’s film about a superheroine and the fourth feature film to emerge from the initiative „Der besondere Kinderfilm“.
