Synopsis

Based on the book by Annie M.G. Schmidt.

 

Abel Roef (11) gets a job in the boring town of Middelum as liftboy at the Knots department store. Things go wrong on the very first day. Abel presses the wrong button and flies through the roof into the wide world with three lift passengers: his ex-girlfriend Laura, the singing teacher Miss Klaterhoen and the mothball salesman Mr Tump. The lift finally lands in New York City and Abel joins his passengers in a maelstrom of adventures.
