Emil is taking the train to Berlin on his own for the first time. And with him he has a small fortune of 250 euros for his grandma. To be on the safe side he has the money attached to his clothes with a fixing pin. But then the disaster happens. Emil falls asleep and when he wakes up all the money is gone! He knows exactly who to suspect: the man in the bowler hat!
Emil is determined to get it back, but is about to lose the trace. Luckily, he gets to know Pony. This girl is amazing and a really good friend. They begin a hair-raising chase across Berlin. Will they catch the thief and get the money back?

In the context of the 75th anniversary of the Theater of the Young World we are staging a new version of the classic by Erich Kästner, with which the theater opened in 1946.
