Rosetta is a 17-year-old Italian girl who lives in a trailer park on the outskirts of the Belgian town of Seraing. She is driven by a need that quickly becomes her singular obsession: securing a steady job and a normal life. Drowning in poverty and neglect, Rosetta puts all she has into finding and keeping a job, but her single-mindedness will force her into making a choice that she may not be prepared to accept.
