“How I learned to fly” is a tender and heartwarming story about growing up and forgiveness.

Twelve-year-old Sofija dreams about a camping trip with her friends, and her first kiss. But she’s forced to spend her summer in a worn-down family house on the Adriatic island Hvar, with her overbearing grandma Marija and quirky great-aunt Luce.

With no friends or wifi, Sofia’s life on Hvar is H-E-L-L, but her boredom is undercut by grandma Maria’s peculiar behavior. Sofia suspects some kind of secret romance is at play, but a closer investigation of grandma’s love life ultimately unearths a long kept-family secret.

Eventually, Sofia gets the summer of her dreams, fueled with new friends, adventure, romance, and so much more than she could have imagined.
