Film Website

Recommended for ages 6 and up

Raffi is a hamster and he is eight-year-old Sammy's best friend. The little rodent is really special. Not only can he kick goals with a football but he can also sniff smuggled goods – even better than police dogs. Sammy and Raffi go through thick and thin together but then, all of a sudden Raffi is gone! Neither Sammy's mother, nor his sister has the time to help search for Raffi, and his father is far away in Afghanistan on a job. So Sammy has to find Raffi, who has fallen into the hands of a ruthless criminal, all by himself. He has to face one adventure after the other in the big city of Hamburg if he ever wants to see Raffi again...
