Gaja’s World is family film narrated by 11 years old Gaja, who introduces us to her unusual family in the world she lives in. In the center of the story is her family which goes through a lot of changes, with the mother off to Medecins sans Frontieres. The father is faced with the troubles and challenges of everyday chores and raising two teenage daughters. Gaja plays the saxophone and is a friend and protector of her weak friend Matic. Gaja’s sister Tea gets in trouble with a foolish and naive online application to a ‘fashion show’. But Gaja, who is smart and savvy takes control of the situations that are facing her, her family and friends, and manages to fix everything. Although she sometimes breaks some rules, her ‘right’ is in line with the honest and bold world that touches us every time.
