Rocks is a teenage girl with big dreams for the future, loyal fun friends and an adoring, though mischievous, little brother Emmanuel. Her world is turned upside down when she returns from school to find her mum gone. As each day becomes tougher and her secret harder to hide, Rocks starts to push away those who love her and her friendship group begins to fracture. When the authorities finally catch up with her, there is really only one source of support for her to turn to: her friends. A film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.
