My Dad's a Detective - Witches Paradise

In this second exciting adventure of the successful Dutch family film series MY DAD'S A DETECTIVE, Sam and his clever tomboy neighbour Sterre and rich kid Ortwin again take action when Sam’s father, a bungling sleuth, gets into a fix.

In an alternative commune of artists, Mara’s mother has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Is this the doing of ordinary crooks, or is the place haunted? Sam, Sterre and Ortwin have to put their hip-hop video, and any feelings they might have about being in love, aside for a while and find out what delusion or reality is in this world, where contemporary witches practice the Wicca-nature religion.
Will Wissink mingles a magical atmosphere and strange rituals with everyday deadpan humour. An amazing  revelation gives the thrilling adventure a sudden personal turn for all people involved.
