Tim, an ambitious athlete from a precarious neighborhood. Willi, a spoiled son of a chocolate manufacturer. Karl, an autistic computer nerd. And Gaby, the school’s hippest girl.

In their very first adventure, these four completely different characters will solve a plot around a stolen treasure – and finally team up to become the famous gang: T K K G!
