Synopsis: Max and his mother have just moved into a castle—well, a retirement home in a castle. Living in a senior citizens' home when you're a kid - can you imagine anything more boring? It doesn’t help that Max is the new kid and just wants to fit in, and find friends. His mom is a nurse, working nights. But Max soon finds friends among the residence’s elderly retirees; actress Vera, soccer coach Horst and researcher Kilian, together better known as the Wild Bunch. They are the quirky friends who sit with each other at Table 7 each night in the elegant dining hall of the castle. They each have incredible life stories –and it’s fun to hang out with them – even if they are already collectively over two-hundred years old.. Soon, clever Max notices something weird is going on in the old castle walls. There seems to be a mysterious thief up to no good, stealing valuables from the residents' rooms in broad daylight. Then, Max's mother unfairly comes under suspicion, and is threatened with losing her position. Max joins forces with Vera, Horst and Killian – can the Wild Bunch bring the real thief to justice?
