The atmosphere is gloomy at Falkenstein Castle. Amid busy preparations for a festive costume ball, there is a burglary. And the miscreants have not only made off with valuable paintings, but – far worse – Count Falko’s entire collection of monocles is gone. As if that weren’t bad enough, the mood at neighboring Martinshof holiday farm is equally glum – not a single guest has booked in yet. Bibi and Tina need to come up with a plan to promote the farm, and that includes a bit of showy sprucking. To top it all off, Bibi has her first serious crush. Of course, it would have to be on Tarik, who – along with his four chaotic brothers and sisters – is turning Martinshof upside down ... while guarding a dark secret.

Detlev Buck was born in 1962 and made his fame as an actor, director and screenwriter at the age of 22. His short film TIME TO KNOCK OFF quickly became a cult classic. His first feature as a director was RABBIT FEVER, which won the Bavarian Film Prize. He followed this up with NO MORE MR. NICE GUY, which garnered an honorable mention at the Berlinale and two German Film Awards. His next film, JAILBIRDS, which he directed and starred in, made stars of the two female leads, Heike Makatsch and Marie Bäumer. In 2004, he won the German Film Award as Best Supporting Actor for his role in BERLIN BLUES (dir: Leander Haußmann). His other works as a director include: TOUGH ENOUGH and HANDS OFF MISSISSIPPI, both of which won German Film Awards in several categories, SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT, MEASURING THE WORLD, and all three BIBI & TINA films.
