Ten-year old Andreas Decker is the new kid in town. He tells his class that he has lived all over the world on account of his parents being top scientific researchers. Yet classmate Vero finds Andreas’s workaholic parents very weird. She suggests to spy on them. So one night, Andreas plants a baby intercom under the cupboard and the children eavesdrop on the parents. It appears that Mum and Dad’s years of research are finally paying off. They talk about conquering the world and a secret that they cannot tell Andreas. For the baffled children, there can be only one conclusion: Andreas’s parents are aliens. Andreas can’t believe it but Vero stands firm: they have to warn the government. The only thing they have to find is evidence…
