When We Went to Catch a Panther and Found Something Much Bigger

Three boys, a panther and the feeling of deep friendship


11-year-old Nico, a city kid and loner, finds his life complicated. His parents are on the verge of divorce and he himself has no friends at school. But now it’s the summer holidays, which he spends as usual with his grandparents in the village, where his friends Gonzo and Poldi also live.

When Nico suddenly comes face to face in the forest with the panther that escaped from the game park the year before, Gonzo is immediately enthusiastic about the plan to catch the animal. After all, there is a large reward on offer. As a good friend, Nico joins in, even though this means he has to face his fears. But then the adventure takes a completely unexpected turn …

Here the clocks tick more slowly, you can feel the sun on your skin, hear the buzzing of the insects and the rustling of the cornfield …
