Drama series in 13 episodes about small events in the lives of five children from Waterland. All leading parts in the series are played by six- and seven-year-old children, who are in the same class in a small village somewhere in the country. Every episode starts when school is out and the children go home. They have all sorts of funny, small and big adventures. In a nice way, the children are self-willed and look for their own solutions to the problems they are faced with. The grown-ups always think they know better. But do they really? In this episode, Olivier Tuinier plays the leading role.
