Brave, funny, and one of a kind: that’s Rocca. Rocca is 11 and lives a rather unique life. While her dad is watching over her as an astronaut from outer space, Rocca lives alone with her squirrel and is attending a normal school for the first time in her life. At school her carefree and non-conformist way of life instantly stands out. She fearlessly confronts the class bullies, because first and foremost Rocca stands up for justice. That’s why she makes friends with the homeless Caspar and tries to help him. With never-ending optimism Rocca proves together with her new friends, that even a child has the power to change the world.
