After the Great War, traumatized Yser front hero Casimir Van De Velde returns home. He’s not amused to see his bitchy sister Coralie turned it into a virtual orphanage and home for other juvenile strays while their father, an even worse traumatized sniper but now utter lush, has to be chained in a barn. Yet Casimir soon takes to the kids and grows utterly protective of the irregular commune, which displeases the municipal authorities, who want the minors placed in official care and the land used for a project of the mayor’s business ally. French colonial cavalry veteran Latiff was hired into a band of ruffians to chase them, but decides to join instead and fight off the fiends.
For generations, there have been all kinds of wild rumors surrounding gangster Al Capone’s hidden fortune and the mysterious amusement park he built. When three kids sneak into the rundown park on the hunt for Capone’s loot, the attractions come to life and take the kids on a wild and dangerous ride beyond all imagination. Now to survive the night, they must team up with a friendly sea witch, find a secret underground ride and take on an evil mermaid, bloodthirsty pirates, a fire-breathing dragon and an armada of monsters. And all on a school night!
