Courageous, funny and unique! This is Rocca. He is eleven years old and lives a rather special life. As her dad looks at her from above—since she's an astronaut on a mission in space—Rocca lives alone with her squirrel and goes to regular school for the first time in her life. Her carefree and unconventional lifestyle makes her stand out immediately among her classmates. She bravely treats class bullies, because first and foremost Rocca defends justice. That's why she becomes friends with the homeless Caspar and tries to help him. At the same time, she struggles with all her might to win her grandmother's heart.
