The Young Detectives is a ten-minute drama series reflecting the life and diversity in a neighborhood where a detective club, run by three local kids, is the main focus. When Carmen, the newcomer, discovers the detectives’ corrupt methods, her legendary great-grandma, the first female agent of Argentina, guides her. Carmen joins the club and uses her great-grandma’s magical detective tools: the compass of love; the writer-sensitive magnifying glass; the smell-sensitive gasmask and the laughter-spreading bottle. With these tools she helps the detectives solve their mysteries. Nobody knows Carmen’s source of magic. In the end, rebellious magic triumphs over injustice.
