83 min.DK/FeatureAdventureChildren's films, Family films

Iqbal and Sille are best friends and have always lived next door to each other. Their street must undergo urban regeneration and, unfortunately, Easelman and The Swine will be in charge of the project, which is in fact a cover for them to get their hands on the oil they have discovered under the street. Iqbal and Sille must now fight against the villains and get the money to buy back their building so they don’t have to move away from each other. When Iqbal discovers a chip with magic energy, the kids manage to convince Easelman and The Swine to buy the chip so they can reclaim their building. But the villains deceive the children, and now Iqbal, Sille and the grown-ups on their street have to put in every effort to retrieve the chip and expose the villains’ secret plan.
