12-year-old Sofia is less than thrilled that she has to spend her summer vacation with her grandmother on an island in Croatia, of all places. But she makes new friends and together they explore everything summer on the island has to offer: bright sunshine, fun in the water, lots of ice cream and even their first kiss.
Her bossy grandmother Maria doesn't make it easy for Sofia to enjoy the summer either. Nightly snoring in their shared bedroom, embarrassing scenes on the beach, and always slapping sunscreen on her face. But with the help of her warm-hearted Aunt Luce and her charming cousin, Sofia overcomes her initial boredom. But the carefree time comes to an abrupt end when Luce has to be hospitalized, leaving Sofia with a part of her family she didn't even know existed. In the wake of the tragedy, a long-held family secret is revealed and old hurts are finally overcome.
This film is shown in original version and will be translated simultaneously into German.
