Mookie is a nine-year-old boy who dreams all day of himself in the role of a secret agent and wishes for nothing better than to become one later on. What hampers him, unfortunately, is his hematologic disorder sickle cell anaemia, which is why he is often tired and in pain. Mookie never behaves as an ill boy: he is cheerful and loved, he raps, dances, kickboxes and plays soccer - that is, if he does not have to hunt for criminals, of course. A youth documentary about imagination and resilience.
