On her wild quest for love, 9-year-old Benni's untamed energy drives everyone around her to despair. She is small, but dangerous. Wherever Benni ends up, she is immediately expelled. The 9-year-old girl has already become what child protection services call a System Crasher. Benni has one single goal: to be back at home with her mommy! Mrs. Bafane from child protection services is trying to find a permanent placement for Benni. She hires the anger management trainer as Benni's school escort and suddenly there is a seed of hope. Will Micha be able to succeed where all others despaired?.
