    • Synopsis
    • Koko, a boy of twelve, moves from a small village to a big town. He and his new neighbourhood friend, Zlatko, investigate the case of the old rich miser, Vincek, who had previously lived in Koko’s apartment. Vincek had supposedly died, but Zlatko has heard his voice in the night, starting to believe he has returned as a ghost.
      Meanwhile, Koko’s family get a threat letter ordering them to move out of their apartment. The boys suspect that Vincek may not be a ghost, but is actually alive and hiding underground. They start digging a tunnel to find his secret hideout.
      One night, Koko sees a ghost moving around his house. Koko and Zlatko are confused: do ghosts exist or not?
      Koko’s school friend, Miki, rummages around his apartment in search for a secret map. Later, Marica, while going to the cinema with Miki, is kidnapped by Miki’s uncle, and Koko’s friends Zlatko and Božo mysteriously disappear in the tunnel.
      Koko manages to save Marica with help from his faithful dog, Tsar. And with the help of the secret map, he finds his missing friends in the underground lair of Vincek, a desperate old man, sorry for the way he had led his miserly life, who faked his death and hid from the same people that threatened Koko’s family: Miki’s father and uncle, who thought Vincek’s treasure was hidden in the apartment. It was Miki’s uncle who dressed as a ghost to scare Koko.
      With friends and family reunited, Koko becomes the hero of the day.
