THE ELFKINS sees director Ute von Münchow-Pohl working on her fourth animated feature for Akkord Film after RABBIT SCHOOL – GUARDIANS OF THE GOLDEN EGG and two RAVEN THE LITTLE RASCAL films.

The famous, hard-working Elfkins of Cologne finally return! Since they were ousted by a malevolent tailor's wife more than 200 years ago, they have been hiding underground. But lively Elfie can’t stand this restricted life any longer and climbs to the surface to find her true calling. Together with two companions, she ends up in the bakery of grumpy pastry chef Theo who is feuding with his profit-hungry brother. While the Elfkins first cause a lot of chaos, Elfie is determined to help Theo. And who would be better suited to “bake” him happy than the Elfkins?
