Hanna, a special needs 37-year-old who shows a moving and philosophical insight into her situation, lives in protective housing, following her daily routine and hoping for love. Earning well below the minimum wage in the kitchens of a government ministry, Hanna applies for a re-evaluation of her salary in the light of her high level of competence at work. The film accompanies her through her hardest and happiest moments.
Hanna is an unforgettable character of great spiritual depth and self awareness, who effortlessly demolishes all our preconceptions about special needs adults.
