The main goal of a summer camp for girl scouts-to-be is primarily to make them independent and teach them how to find their way out of any foreseeable situation, as well as any unforeseeable problem. Guided by this mission, girls Lotaand Lujza unexpectedly meet at one such camp and find out that they are sisters.This is the beginning of an exciting suspense story, but also of a great friendship, and immense love between two sisters who had been separated. When they decide to switch places, the story becomes even more complicated.Lota, who is too serious for her age and who had lived with her mother, goes to live with her father, while Lujza, whose hair always looks untidy, goes to live with their mother. So, two girls who though sleeping under a starry sky would be the highlight of their summer, get caught up in the middle of an adventure bigger than they could have imagined. Entering worlds that are completely new to them will demand completing some difficult tasks to maintain their covers, such as eating five pancakes at a time, learning to cook in one day, keeping one’s clothes closet a mess, and painting nails pink! The girls will complete all these tasks successfully to get the answers to their questions: ‘Why did our parents separates in the first place?’; ‘How did they manage to keep our twins secret?’, and, most importantly, ‘How could they become a family again?’. As much as they and the families in which they grew up are different, the girls have one thing in common all the time: their unfaltering sisterly love. The focus of the story is on children’s wit and craftiness that always give them an edge, because the world of grown-ups so frequently forgets the most powerful weapon of all – imagination.It is imagination, together with a little bit of courage, a lot of laughter, and a portion of resolve, that makes any plan come true, no matter how much it may seem impossible in the beginning.
Why didn’t’ they ever tell us… everything! Tell me about you, tell you about me.
We’ll show them what we think about it.
We mustn’t! We are just children.
