To William’s uncle Nils, the world consists of only idiots. And he thinks of William’s mother, who lives in an institution and does not speak, as crazy. William does not care about that, he likes Nils and his mother, whom he visits every Sunday. When the boy is being blackmailed by some rough guys at school and his uncle is in trouble with a gangster, his mother begins to give him notes with mysterious messages. Can those help him? A buoyant comedy that brings fun as well as touching the heart. (StS)
