76 min.DK/FeatureChildren''s films

Erik Lund is a celebrated professor of child psychology, well known for his humanistic theories. While his sister is away on vacation, he has the opportunity of trying his theories out on her five kids. The kids take blatant advantage of their uncle''s lack of experience. As their old wreck of a house is about to be sold, they manage to persuade uncle to allow them to fix it up. Uncle doesn''t know what he''s in for, since these kids stop at nothing to reach their goal. Uncle can only watch in horror, as his theories on modern upbringing are put to a severe test.
