Some claim computer games could be very dangerous. Daniel, the hero of this story doesn't care about such stories and keeps on playing his favourite game 'Robin Hood'. But very soon he recognises that playing the game was not such a good idea, as it has a deadly bug which nobody expected. When you press the wrong button, a time gap opens and the player is thrown into Robin Hood's world. This has happened to Daniel and many other children from Berlin, who now find themselves in the real Middle Ages with Robin and his gang, the sneaking Prince John and the stupid but evil Sheriff of Nottingham. Before Daniel's mother finally finds out which button to press in order to bring back her son and her husband, who in the meantime has also been catapulted into Robin's world, they all have to survive some dangerous adventures.
