A treasure of gold? Just the thing Mr. and Mrs. Teuffel (Katja Flint, Axel Milberg) could do with right now– as could the mayor (Thomas Thieme) and the vicar (Andreas Schmidt). The financial crisis has reached the quaint little village of Krummenwalde, and when the baby of the family, Sophie Teuffel, finds a gold coin in the lake, the excitement mounts. Isn’t there mention of a sunken treasure in thevillage chronicles? But the discovery also calls the attention of preservationist Lorenz (Kai Wiesinger)… A village community takes fate into its own hands.
