It’s summer. And it’s the first day of the holidays. A perfect combo, Juli thinks to herself as she bites into her first delicious donut of the day. Every afternoon, she meets her friends Selina and Lene at Tom’s donut truck. Juli’s brother Tom makes the best donuts in Sonnenstein. But this summer, Tom is under particular pressure: He needs to sell a lot of donuts so he can make sufficient profits and pay all his costs. Otherwise he’s going to have to close the food truck. Juli and her friends decide to help him by delivering donuts on their bikes. Everything works out great until Max turns up. He simply stops the three girls one afternoon during their delivery run and grabs two donuts. The next day, it’s not just Max who turns up and steals donuts, but two of his friends as well. Tom receives complaints from his customers. This can’t go on! The donut gang needs to come up with something.

In order to deter the boys from thieving once and for all, Juli and her friends create the “donuts from hell” – with lots of pepper, chili and hot peppers, according to the motto: Divinely sweet is over, now things are getting hellishly spicy! The morsels literally get stuck in the throats of Max and his friends. They’ll definitely never, ever waylay the girls again. They've understood: You better don't mess with the donut gang!
