Brave, funny, and one of a kind – that’s Rocca. Although only eleven, she lives on her own, with her squirrel. Her dad is “watching” her from the above – he is an astronaut. For the first time in her life, Rocca is attending a normal school. There, her carefree and non-conformist way of life instantly stands out as she fearlessly confronts the class bullies. All the while, she is also attempting to win over her grandmother’s heart.

Katja Benrath graduated in Singing and Acting in Vienna and holds an MA from Hamburg Media School. Her graduation film, Watu Wote, received the Student Academy Award for Best International Narrative Film. Rocca Changes the World is her first feature.
