11 year old Pia (Jamie Bick) suffers from the loss of her father, till one day the cute but mysterious Yeti child YOKO appears in her treehouse. YOKO has resorted from the malicious big game hunter Thor van Sneider (Tobias Moretti), who accidently got hold of the small Yeti!

He has to return to his home country immediately – but Sneider has different plans…
