Ever wondered who packs the fresh plasitc-sealed salad you are having for lunch? Who are the people getting laid off from their factory jobs in the small rural towns? Ready for a visit to another kind of Sweden?

When the forceful young Muslim Swedish/Balkan factory worker Rasa, who has a noo-shit, never-say-die attitude to life, loses her job, she faces unemployment.

With no high school diploma, no job - but her boots deeply stined with the mud  of the small town she grew up in - Rasa finds herself on collision course with society and a comical world of bureaucracy and contradicting values and expectations.

First-time actors play all of the main characters in the film.
