Jackie(12) has made the Rijksmuseum her second home, since her mother works there. While Jackie’s wandering around after hours, Oopjen Coppit (from Rembrandt’s famous painting) suddenly appears in front of her; she’s looking for her long lost sister. Jackie’s used to solving other people’s problems and decides to take her home, so they can go look for her sister.

For Oopjen, a woman from the Golden Age, the 21st century is a big adventure and Jackie finally gains a real friend: a true BFF.
