Emilia is a suburban kid. She goes to school, lives with her Mom and sometimes her Dad, 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 Hyper Hamster, 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 because of poisoned water. As the Hyper Hamster, Emilia takes it upon herself to fix the situation and finds ways to be more courageous in her own life. The Hyper Hamster is a story of courage, friendship, being different, environmental issues and the wonderful things a mundane life can throw at you.
