Kids Euro 2021: Summer Rebels (Sommer-Rebellen) (2020), dir. Martina Saková
Summer Rebels tells the story of 11-year-old German youngster Jonas, whose family is scattered between Germany and Slovakia. He is excited to spend the summer holidays with his grandpa, as usual, and hopes to stay there forever. But, when Jonas arrives in Slovakia for the summer, he learns that Grandpa Bernard has changed.
Since his retirement, Bernard's life has been going off the rails. For Jonas, getting his old grandfather back won’t be so easy - but it can be an adventure. Alongside his new buddy, local tomboy Alex, Jonas is determined to bring some adventure back into Grandpa Bernard's life, even if it means making a little bit of trouble along the way.
