Two families live in a little old house - the normal-sized Lenders and the 4-inch tall Clocks. While the Clocks are fully aware of their housemates, the Lenders have no idea there are tiny people living with them "borrowing" items and helping themselves to food! But the peaceful life that the Clocks and the Lenders live is threatened when a lawyer sets out to demolish the house. Will the Clocks and the Lenders save their happy home?

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
