When the forceful young Muslim Swedish/Balkan factory worker Rasa loses her job, she must navigate the unemployment system. With no high school diploma, no job – but her boots deeply stained with the mud of the small town she grew up in – Rasa finds herself on a collision course with society and its contradictory values and expectations.
A young Eastern European immigrant working in Sweden is faced with a painful choice when she's laid off from her factory in the name of "efficiencies." This film by Gabriela Pichler is possibly the most exciting and emotionally acute first feature to emerge from Sweden in well over a decade.
[First time amateur actors play all of the main characters in the film.]
