Trailer Eat Sleep Die
Synopsis
Raša Abdulahović can pack 12 bags of lettuce in 4.5 seconds. She’s a no-shit 21 year old tom-boy muslim immigrant who spends her time looking after her worn-out father and hanging out with her fellow workers from the vegetable packing plant. It’s a rugged small-town life but she has her dad, and she has her job… However, things are about to turn around. When Raša loses her job she is forced into a world where bureaucracy rules and ‘confidence coaching’ is deemed necessary. A sense of disorientation and loss of purpose is complete when her father, her back-to-the-wall buddy, has to go off to Norway to work. She is alone, and desperate to find a new job. The small town and life she is clinging to, is just getting smaller. She starts to register that there might be a bigger world out there, and ultimately she is going to have to face it. At her farewell party, after she breaks down, there is a tinge of a smile on her face. In the end nothing will drag her down. Never-say-die.
