12-year-old Gretchen comes to stay on her uncle's farm for the holidays, but shortly after her arrival strange things start to happen. Gretchen has a passion for science and a talent for all things mechanical, which is why the old brass weathervane fascinates her. But the "brass daisy rod" has a complex and terrifying significance, and Gretchen plus her new friend Ronny discover its links with far distant Sirius, the Dog Star. (6 x 30min)
