Plot summary:

"When Astrid Lindgren was still quite young, an event occurred which affected her on a fundamental level, granting her an in-depth insight into children's souls. This very incident convinced her to break with the norms, the religious and societal expectations of the day, and transformed her into a storyteller, one of the most innovative women of our time." (the production company's synopsis)
