Dark woods around a quiet lake, a series of mysterious crimes, a band of sleuthing kids ready to take the case that’s shaking up the whole town. Koko and his friends make an entertaining Scooby gang in this coming-of-age adventure set in an idyllic Croatian countryside. When burglars target homes in a small community, the adults seek help from police who demonstrate little concern. Tensions rise as the spree continues. Local boys who had nothing planned for the summer beyond practicing their diving skills, batting away pesky girls, and telling ghost stories around the fire suddenly find themselves in hot pursuit of the thieves. For fans of Stand By Me and the nostalgic flavor of Stranger Things, this charmer celebrates the bonds of friendship, the thrill of the chase, the spark of first love, and the bittersweet reward of doing the right thing even when the answers you find aren’t the ones you sought. Age 10+
