Ola, a seventeen-year-old Polish girl, tries her best to pass her driving test because it is only with her driving licence in hand that she will get the car she was promised by her father who works in Ireland. The situation changes radically when the father is accidentally killed at work and Ola, being the only English-speaking member of the family, has to travel to Ireland to deal with the formalities and arrange for the transport of the body. A sensitive and sarcastically humorous story about the transformation of a girl into a woman.
