Mete thinks everybody has a special talent. For example, his friend Asya, who expresses life through colors is a true color-crazy. And Tuna, who hears every single voice is sound-crazy. but Mete could still not discover which super talent lies in him – and he hopelessly thinks he hasn’t got any. Or perhaps, he is a fairy? Why should all fairies be female? Is there such a law, after all?

One day, panic breaks out at home. there will be guests coming from abroad and Mete’s parents are in a hurry to make arrangements. The guests are one -very interesting- lady and her daughter Lila, who claims every color has millions of subtones. Yet another one with a super talent. Mete isn’t terribly happy about the new kid on the block.

But then a lot of mysterious events happen one after the other. Parents getting lost, a beautiful art street doomed to be destroyed, spurious red spots on the walls, blue-painted men waiting at the end of the street and this smell of garlic-meets-rotten-eggs hanging on the air… Adventure is calling Mete and the super kids!
