Raa (Nermina Lukač) lives with her father, a Muslim immigrant from the Balkans, in Sweden. She has a job on the assembly line of a food producing factory and , since his father is disabled, is the breadwinner of the family. She is content with her life, working in the day and going off with her mates for a drink in the evenings; hence Eat, Sleep, Die of the title. That is until she is laid off from her job and finds out how difficult it is to find any job as a female Muslim immigrant with no good looks in Sweden.
The film is shot documentary style with hand held camera and the performances, specially that of Nermina Lukac, are very natural and totally believable. Eat, Sleep, Die is a welcome change from the glitzy soap dramas made in Holloywood and is worth catching.
