    over to

    can you please tell me what over to means? I think is the same as "to" but I didn't find it in any dictionary

    Yes, it means "to".
    But the "over" adds an element of direction or movement.
    For example if you and a friend were standing beside a bridge, you could say:
    "Let's go to the other side" or
    "Let's go over to the other side" (More common in this situation).
    You might see in a movie, a cop saying "Hand over the gun!". This means "Hand the gun to me", or "Hand the gun over to me".
    There's really no difference in meaning.
