Adventurous and funny Sofija is forced to spend her vacation with her overbearing grandmother Maria, 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 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 pair of family members she’d never met. Nevertheless, in the wake of tragedy, the family overcomes old traumas and when Sofija returns home, she realizes that revealing painful secrets is challenging but very liberating.
