Synopsis:
Adventurous and funny Sofija (12) is forced to spend her vacation with her overbearing grandmother Maria (67), on an island in Croatia. It’s not the ideal summer experience she had hoped for, but with the help of her warmhearted old aunt Luce (65) and her charming cousin, Sofija overcomes her initial boredom. She makes new friends and together they explore everything the summer on the island has to offer: sparkling sun, fun in the water, lots of ice cream and her first kiss. But her carefree time comes to an abrupt end, when beloved Luce has to be taken to hospital, leaving Sofija with a part of her family she didn’t even know existed. Nevertheless, in the wake of tragedy, the family finally overcomes old traumas and when Sofia returns home, she realizes that revealing painful secrets is challenging but very liberating.
An entertaining family film that takes you on a charming, yet emotional summer adventure by the sea.
