Sisters: The Summer We Found Our Superpowers
Original title: Tottori! Sommeren vi var alene
German title: Der Sommer, in dem wir allein waren
Vega is nine years old and very level-headed. She is “the only normal person in the family”, so to speak. Her five-year-old, wild sister Billie does whatever she wants, her father does not exactly behave like an adult and her mother has to rest in a clinic this summer because “she always thinks so much”. This is why she cannot go to the mountains with them, where the three of them want to enjoy nature, fishing and sleeping in their tent. At a farmhouse, where an old, strange woman lives, they start hiking – through the forest, over rocks, along a raging river. In the evening they camp in a meadow, watch the sunset and the father amazes his daughters with a card trick. The next day their path leads them over a twisting suspension bridge to the other side of the river. Everything here is so beautiful and exciting. But then an accident happens. The father falls into a deep cave and injures his ankle. The children are supposed to get help. All alone they have to find the long way back over the dangerous suspension bridge and to the old woman’s house.
