Ado and Suni, two self-sufficient Bosnian brothers, are spending summer the usual way: visiting Slovenia, staying at the high-rise of their jovial, childless uncle and his wife. Younger, pubescent Suni isn't as enthusiastic about the change of scenery as Ado, who is learning Slovenian for his new girlfriend. But Suni soon joins a gang of rascals his own age; he plays ball, trespasses, gets into scrapes and tries to look up girls' skirts. While an earthy, universal coming-of-age story - during a life changing summer. ON THE SUNNY SIDE also reminds us that many kids lost their parents in battle over the past several years. This is a different Balkans than the minefield locale of "Summer in the Golden Valley." This is a healing land. Infernoes of war have burned themselves out, mortar-guns are at last silent, and an unscarred generation from all racial affiliations and faiths can just be kids again, sporting, roughhousing and falling in lovewithout fear.
