Roca is changing the world
Directed by: Katja Benrath
Brave, funny and unique: this is Rocca. He is eleven years old and lives a rather special life. While her dad looks down on her – since he is an astronaut on a mission in space – Rocca lives alone with her squirrel and goes to a regular school for the first time in her life. Her carefree and unconventional lifestyle makes her immediately stand out among her classmates. She bravely faces the class bullies, because first and foremost Rocca defends justice. That is why, after all, she befriends the homeless Caspar and tries to help him. At the same time, she fights with all her might to win her grandmother’s heart.
