The festivals word on the film:
"In 1909, in an undemocratic Sweden, a bastard child is born. Her mother is unmarried, due to which she is called a whore and driven away from her home. She grows up at shelters and orphanages, rejected by society. As an adult she spends her life struggling for social justice. In old age she tells us her unique story.
