Elsa longs to be a star and she makes her life sound very glamorous indeed to try to make her wish come true. The reality is very different. As her family moves from one dump to another, Elsa creates a background of jokes to try to ease the pain of the increasingly depressing homes. Not that anyone is laughing much.
