Twelve-year-old Sofija (Klara Hrvanović) dreams about camping with friends and of her first kiss. However, she is forced to spend the summer in a dilapidated family house on Hvar, with her, kind of annoying, grandma Marija (Olga Odanović) and the silly Luce (Snježana Sinovčić), her grandma’s sister. Without her friends, signal, or the Internet, Sofija’s life on Hvar is ‘hell’, but the monotony is soon interrupted by grandma Marija’s unusual behaviour. Sofija suspects that there is a kind of a secret romance at stake, but a great investigation of her grandmother’s love life actually results in the discovery of a long-kept family secret. With newly formed friendships, crushes, and adventures, Sofija does not only get her dream summer vacation but much more than she could have imagined.

Some of the most important European heroines of art will gather at ‘Vila’, the first festival in the heart of the oldest national park, Fruška Gora, in Vrdnik from 3 to 5 June.

Gothic fairy Tarja Turunen, classical music fairies – violinist Simone Lamsma and violist Tabea Zimmermann, four fairies that make up the band Warpaint, Jenny Berggren from the band Ace of Base, as well as the regional fairies Natali Dizdar and Kaliopi, and the fairy of Yugoslav theatre, Anica Dobra, among many others, will be a part of a unique experience that this festival will offer in the magical ambience through different contents – plays, concerts, dance performances, poetry, film, gastronomy, rock camp for girls, as well as programmes for the youngest.
Free admission.
