The movie consists of two novels with the same characters, but different adventures. A group of kids spend all their holidays together at the seaside. They never grow tired of games and mischief. But sometimes they decide to arrange the lives of the adults, which lead to ludicrous situations.Written by

The movie is very very funny. It takes place on a Bulgarian Black Sea resort where a group of adults with their young children are spending their summer vacation.
It has a very memorable character in Chicho Vancho(uncle Vancho), who would risk his life in order to get a hold of a compromising picture of his girlfriend getting out of his car.
Even worse, the picture is in the hands of a curious neighborhood child.
For people who grew up in communist Bulgaria, the movie is a very funny and nostalgic look at the 'good old days'. I don't think it has ever been subtitled into English, and it is a shame. English speakers would enjoy this sneak peak into Bulgarian cinema during communist times.
