"Rico, Oskar und die Tieferschatten" (2014)
In English, when a kid is super smart we call them “gifted.” Germans call such kids “highly gifted.” Rico is a “lowly gifted” kid. In English you would call that “challenged” or “special.” He lives with his mom in Berlin during a time when the city is in a panic over a serial kidnapper. One day, he meets Oskar, who is “highly gifted.” They become friends, but the next day when Oskar is supposed to visit, he doesn’t show up. Then the news breaks: Oskar has been kidnapped! It is up to Rico to solve the mystery and save his friend.
