10-year-old Kolos and Grandpa land on a deserted island after their ship is wrecked – and this island will be their new home – and new adventures begin! The plot of each episode is set around practical problems; Kolos and Grandpa are able to solve these problems using their knowledge in natural science – occasionally with the help of a friendly tapir.
