Trouble in cosy Bieberheim! A citizens’ initiative is fighting to return the Els brook, which has been encased in concrete, to its natural course.

Whenever they intervene to protect the environment, they leave behind a green skull and crossbones as a sign. During their clandestine missions, they repeatedly get into dicey situations. Luckily there is Miranda, who lives on a houseboat and is up for any adventure …
