Plääh, Onnilla on kamala flunssa! Mutta jokin on silloinkin hauskaa: saa kuumaa kaakaota, kurkkupas-tilleja ja - mikä parasta - saa pelata tietokoneella! Olavista on epäreilua, kun veli on saanut pelata niin paljon. Ja isin päätä kuumottaa liiasta pelaamisesta. Välillä leikitään ulkonakin ja pelataan shakkia. Olaville uusi tietokonepeli on liian jännä, Onnin mielestä taas muissa perheissä saa pelata enemmän. Veljekset kinastelevat ja lapset istuisivat aina tietokoneen ääressä.
Äiti haluaisi heittää koko pelin parvekkeelta alas. Sitten isi uskoo keksivänsä ratkaisun pelaami-seen! Toimiiko se?
