When Karl has to move to Copenhagen with his mother, he at first feels completely out of place. Luckily, at his new school he makes friends with Sawsan, a classmate of Turkish origin, who shows him around town. But Sawsan, who seems so cool, has her own problems. She wants to perform a song she's written in a talent show on TV, but her traditionalist father is strictly against the idea. The two friends have to come up with a plan to get Sawsan on stage. In the best tradition of Scandinavian children's films, The Secret Mission tells of how shared passions can overcome prejudice and cultural differences.
