Cecilia (12) is spending the summer at the idyllic holiday paradise Skutebukta, working at Perlen Guest House with her father. Cecilia is still grieving her mother, who was found drowned a year ago. When urban kid Leo (13) comes to stay at the guest house with his mother, Cecilia and her best friend Une (12) are initially skeptical. The trio discovers the body of a dead man on the beach by the guest house. As it turns out, he is on the run after robbing a jeweller. The take, including the irreplaceable Maltese clock, is still missing.
