A tough-looking teen, Rara, deals with the boredom of rural life by inventing extreme challenges to stream on her YouTube channel. When she and her family become part of a TV show, all of Rara’s weaknesses and sorrows pop up. Quirky and ironic comedy, enriched with sharply written dialogues and brilliantly directed.

Om de saaiheid van haar leven op het platteland te bestrijden bedenkt de stoere tiener Rara talloze extreme uitdagingen die ze streamt via haar YouTube-kanaal. Maar dan wordt haar gezin onderdeel van een televisieshow en komen al haar zwaktes bovendrijven. Briljant geregisseerde, speelse en ironische komedie vol scherpe dialogen.
