"Born as a nickel, you will never become a dime," says one Dutch proverb. However, the documentary â€˜Chica Radio Girlsâ€™ shows that it is definitely possible to become an exception to this rule. We watch how Selaica (18), Joanne (17) and Eva (22) are struggling to make it in their lives, involving ups and downs. How do you overcome the difficulties at home, with friends and at school, so that you can focus on your own life and your own dreams?
