Summery youth drama about the big issues in life (like love and death), but still light-hearted and cheery, with the West Frisian Islands as a photogenic setting. The film made a triumphant tour along international youth film festivals - and rightly so.
On the first day of his holiday on the island of Terschelling, Sam meets the peculiar girl Tess. She has devised a clever plan to get to know the father she never had, but has only one week to do so. Sam can help her. Although he was engrossed in his ‘aloneness training’, adventure beckons! This film, an adaptation of Anna Woltz’s eponymous book, collected numerous awards internationally: from Berlin and New York to Norway and Russia.
