In 1931, when "Emil und die Detektive" is made into a film and renders its creator a famous man, an unusual friendship develops between the childless writer and the fatherless Hans, nine-year old actor of the "kleinen Dienstag" ("little Tuesday"). Their friendship is put to the test in the Third Reich, when Kästner's books are banned and little Hans becomes a "sixth-former in uniform".
