Maj lives with her uncle Sonny in his tattoo studio. Although both of them like their life together, they keep dreaming about finding a „real family“ for the girl. After all, in Sonny‘s opinion tattoos and children don‘t fit together. And yes, when he is distracted one day, Maj issues a scribble on a tough rocker‘s back so that she and her uncle have to leave town, before the „victim“ notices the mishap. On their way to the coast they stop in a forest full of magical creatures and meet a circus family with a cuddly tiger. Maj recognises that she doesn‘t need a „real“ family after all.
