Brave, funny, and one of a kind – that’s Rocca. Although she is only 11, she lives alone, in the company of her squirrel. Her dad “watches” her from above – because he is an astronaut. For the first time in her life, Rocca will start attending a normal school. Her carefree and non-conformist character will instantly make her stand out, and she will also confront the school bullies. But the determined little girl will not stop until she wins over her grandmother’s heart as well.
