Koos, a little boy of almost eight, has been adopted from Peru as a baby. When his adoptive Dutch mother becomes pregnant, his search for his Indian roots becomes more intensive. The story is told in a way that also a child can understand the feelings of Koos and his aim to become a true Indian and to discover his Indian name that should content qualities or specific characteristics of the owner. Koos evolves a strong faith which shows him that his best friend lives not outside himself but deep inside his soul.
