Synopsis

Milla and Milla – the two friends with identical names and sense of humour – have enough on their plate. There is Jonas and his girlfriend, Luna, who they simply have to prank. There is the dog, Bobby, who has to learn to play dead. And there is a bathroom that has to be filled with balloons, so Milla’s mum has to go and pee in the garden.

So when Milla’s mum announces that she has to go to London on a work assignment, and that Milla’s grandmother will look after her meanwhile, it is a complete and utter shock. Milla’s grandmother is not only a posh lady with golden jewellery and pink nail varnish, she is also a lady with A LOT of rules.

The friends only see one way out of it: they have to prank Milla’s grandmother! ‘Cause is it really that important if the soap smells of roses or tomatoes? If you eat carrots or crisps? But what exactly is Milla’s grandmother up to when she disappears into the nearby park all the time in her high-heeled shoes?
