Äta Sova Dö

Eat Sleep Die

EAT SLEEP DIE follows Raša, a twenty-one-year-old employee of the local salad-packing factory. She came from Balkan to Sweden and lives with her father in a small village in the Swedish province of Skåne. Raša has to earn the biggest part of the housekeeping allowance because her father has a number of health problems that keep him from working. While her job is utterly routine, the young woman has developed some kind of friendship with her fellow workers. Actually she is not unhappy, but when the owner of the factory announces that layoffs are necessary in this shrinking economy, Raša's livelihood is endangered. With no high school diploma and no job she is forced to re-evaluate her life and make some tough decisions about her future.
