Family comedy based on themes from the book series “Geschichten vom Franz” by Christine Nöstlinger, published by Friedrich Oetinger.

Franz is by far the smallest in his class, has blond ringlets and develops a high-pitched squeaky voice when he gets upset. Fortunately, two best friends help him out: Gabi and Eberhard. When Franz one day discovers Hank Haberer’s “10 Rules for a Real Man”, turbulence is inevitable and the friendship of the three is thrown into a turmoil.
