At the prestigious Sherlock Holmes Mystery School the best and brightest children are taught to master the craft of sleuthing. On the verge of being expelled, underperforming Lewis Lamps is tasked with finding a mystery to solve in order to pass his final exam.  Lewis, with the help of his classmates, sets out to uncover the circumstances behind the disappearance of a professor. Part “Harry Potter,” part “Scooby Doo,” these meddling kids combine to use their powers of deduction in this fast paced comedy for kids.
