Mathilde, 13, is frustrated by the state the world is in today - with all the pollution, poverty and inequality. She decides to form a detective agency with the aim to help the weakest members of society. Unfortunately, the only two candidates interested in joining her agency are Tobias and Gustav. Tobias is a friendless geek with computer playing skills and an ability to build gadgets that rarely work. Gustav claims to be a taekwondo expert, but in fact he is just an overweight coward. And both boys are secretly in love with Mathilde. With lots of persistence and against all odds, this motley crew succeeds in thwarting the plans of a notorious mobster, but the detectives also catch the attention of an ambitious police superintendent, who believes that a child gang is ravaging her city.
Feature debut by Esben Tønnesen. The Detectives premiered at Amsterdam Cinekid 2013.
