Emilia (Ella Jäppinen) is a divorce kid from East Helsinki. She goes to school, lives with her Mom (Essi Hellén) and sometimes her Dad (Eero Ritala), and her life couldn’t be more ordinary. But one day, Emilia’s pet hamster bites her finger. Emilia gets a secret superpower to transform into Hyperhamster, who can fly and solve problems with her superpowers. At the same time, the herrings in the nearby Baltic Sea bay are screaming for help. Poisoned water has made them irate, and they’re threatening the peace and quiet in all of East Helsinki. As the Hyperhamster, Emilia takes on to salvage the situation and finds ways to be more courageous in her own life.
The Hyperhamster is a story of courage, friendship, being different, environmental issues and the wonderful things mundane life can throw at you. Movie is freely based on Paula Noronen‘s children’s books. The film is set to premiere in January, 2018.
