Max & Josef - Double Trouble

When his mother gives birth, it is not the football-playing brother that Max has always dreamed of, but a girl – Isabelle – a demanding little monster who annihilates all his dreams of a pleasant life as big brother.Max then pins his hopes on his birthday. Maybe his parents will give him a dog? But no, they give him a tortoise with a serious attitude problem, Josef. Nothing seems to turn out the way Max would like it.After an exceptionally bad start together, Josef slowly wins Max’s trust and he starts listening to his new supposed friend.Josef helps Max to voice his jealousy and hatred towards the baby sister who has barged in and stolen his place in the sun. Josef also tells Max about the kids’ shop - where all the kids who nobody likes anymore end up. After all, if they were that pleased with Max, why would they have another baby? They’ve already had three. Is there really enough room for six people in this family? It also looks like Max will have to share his room with his baby sister. His father tries to save the situation by turning the garage into a windowless room for him. With Josef’s words, “Home is good. But away from home is much, much better,” echoing in his head, Max decides to run away from home. If his family really loves him, they will have to prove it.
