Kıymık is a boy of 11 with a highly developed imagination. His parents are divorced and they temporarily leave the boy at his grandmother’s care. Although not very old, the grandmother is nevertheless a very boring lady who is slower than a turtle, who has become disgusted with life, who never goes out and who has very strict rules. Kıymık turns his room into a private detective office. He dedicates himself to solving the problems of the neighbourhood and his friends. While he is reading the newspaper one morning, one of the specialized ads attracts his attention: A paralyzed man would like to hire a young person to read him books. If he gets this job, his boring days would become colourful, he could buy chocolate which his grandmother forbids, he could take Baldudak, the most beautiful girl in his class to the movies.
