Rocca Changes the World
About the event
Rocca is a unique 11 year-old girl with a gung-ho attitude to life. As her father is an astronaut on the International Space Station, she is sent to live with her grandmother in Hamburg. At school she struggles to conform and challenges the things that she sees as unjust. When her grandmother is hospitalised Rocca is left home alone and must find a way not to be taken into social care, while at the same time using social media to tackle bullying at school and the attitude to the homeless people in the town.
