« Be nice! Mom has a little thing that’s bugging her! » : Dad’s words echo in the little boy’s head. He wonders why Mom is sad.  He asks everyone around him, and everyone has his own vision of a bug. No description seems to really match. Eventually, he comes up with a solution : fight the bug! The « secret mission » mode is now on, and the little boy turns into a brave knight, ready to face the terrible insect!
