Ten-year-old Sam is spending the summer holidays with his family on the Dutch island of Terschelling. On the very first day, his brother breaks his leg, and Sam meets the lively Tess, daughter of the attending nurse. Tess has set herself the goal of finding her father, who is unaware of her existence; and she decides that loner Sam shall be the one to help her in this endeavor. Steven Wouterlood’s feature debut is an emotional coming-of-age drama in which a patchwork family girl and a traditional family boy meet in a whirlwind of contradictory feelings. It advocates mutual acceptance and illustrates that the greatest wealth of man are relationships. Recommended for age 8 or older
