- Synopsis / Plot
- Seventeen-year-old Rosetta lives in a trailer park with her alcoholic mother and wants nothing more out of life than the simple dignity of a job. She becomes so desperate for work that she betrays the young man, Riquet, who befriended her, so that she can assume his job at a waffle stand. The film's look is distinctive, featuring close-in shots with a hand-held camera that visual reflect Rosetta's emotional instability.
