Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2017

The island where Conni and Co enjoyed many happy summers is for sale to a hotel company! But when her dog finds a gigantic dinosaur bone, the kids hope to persuade Neustadt’s Mayor Möller otherwise. But Möller has his own plans and the bone disappears. Complicating matters is that Conni’s father is the engineer responsible for the new hotel and Paul’s parents’ bookshop is in financial trouble: they have to leave Neustadt but the new hotel would offer them a future. The children set out on a secret search for fossils, then the site must be preserved. It’s a race against time and the mayor. At the last minute the kids find an entire T-Rex skeleton. The island is now saved and soon Neustadt has a dinosaur museum that brings many tourists to the town.
