|Bea is a seven-year-old girl, shy and a little bit clumsy.
Her classmates tend to ignore and make fun of her, so she often retreats into her imagination.
Maybe that’s why her only friends are Theo and Sophie, the famous presenters of the Saturday TV show.
One day, however, everything changes.
A very valuable coin her father, a coin expert, was looking after, suddenly disappears from the family home.
Being in the wrong place at the wrong time she immediately falls under suspicion.
Unable to prove her innocence, she takes shelter in an imaginary world and is transported by the magic of her favourite TV programme to the other side of the screen.
There she learns how much she loves her family and the huge trouble they are all in, and so convinces Theo and Sophie to help her find the coin, without realising that the crossing between the two worlds will change everything: her, her family, her classmates and friends.
