Synopsis

In 1909, in an undemocratic Sweden, a bastard child is born and given the name of Hervor. Her mother is unmarried, due to which she is called a ”whore” and driven away from her home. Hervor grows up at shelters and orphanages. As an adult she spends her life struggling for social justice. Director Knutte Wester brings his grandmother’s memories to life through hand-painted animated images and has us witness someone being rejected in order to unite others

A life constrained by rules, a society that condemns and rejects. If you are not like you should, you have no place and no hope to find your place. You watch and this hopelessness percolates you, you get angry, it hurts.
