Based on the worldwide best-selling book series of the same name by Alice Pantermüller, we meet Lotta and her best friend, Cheyenne, who are excited to go on their first school trip. That is, until they find out who’s going: Cheyenne´s little sister Chanell, Lotta’s father as a chaperon, and their new French classmate Rémi who has a huge crush on Lotta! And from there the trip goes from bad to worse: a haunted hostel, Chanell disappears, and an old legend of a poltergeist. Fortunately, there is Lotta´s gang the “Wild Rabbits” - you can always rely on them.
