One sunny day, fourth grader Thomas is heading to school when he decides that the streets of Berlin are much more interesting than his classroom. When he notices a building on fire, he alerts the fire department and ends up saving two small children's lives. But in order to be recognized for his heroism, he will have to admit that he was skipping school.
