One day, Adam’s teacher gives him an assignment to draw his family tree. The boy starts writing down his relatives and finds that they certainly won’t all fit on the tree – he’ll have to make a hundred-legged octopus with one relative for each leg! He can’t fail to include his Aunt Mari, who treasures curiosities, his Uncle Kaupo, who just won’t give up smoking, his foulmouthed Uncle Marko, his little brother Aapi, who gets into all his things, or his football-fanatic older brother Anton; not to mention his Aunt Ilme, who is almost unnoticeable. As Adam’s dad says: “You don’t choose your relatives.”
