Tsatsiki longs for the summer holidays when he will go to Greece to see his father, Yanis. When Tsatsiki arrives in their village, he finds that it has changed. Hotels and restaurants are deserted. There is a financial crisis in Greece and his beloved village isn’t as he remembered. When Yanis tells Tsatsiki he might have to sell their hotel and olive grove, Tsatsiki is heartbroken. But Tsatsiki’s mother has taught him to never give up. He realizes it’s up to him to save the hotel and olive grove, otherwise his beloved home in Greece will be lost forever. Together with the wild and fearless Alva, a 12-year-old girl full of humor and bravery, he begins a rescue-mission that turns his summer holiday into a journey filled with adventure, friendship and love.
