A few words about the film:

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. An entertaining family film that takes you on a charming, yet emotional summer adventure by the sea.
