Fiction, OV with Eng. ST, with German voice-over, released for 6+, recommended for 8+

This year, the siblings John, Susan, Tatty, and Roger are going on vacation to the English Lake District with just their mother. After much persuasion they are permitted to sail to a secluded island in the middle of the lake – and so the adventure begins. It quickly becomes apparent that they may not be on their own… Who has recently lit a fire and who is the strange man living in a houseboat on the lake who keeps a parrot on his shoulder? Set in the 1930s, this film exudes the charm of a classic adventure film and allows the audience to dive in to an exciting tale of friendship, family and solidarity through its picturesque imagery.
