A Bastard Child
In 1909, in pre-democratic Sweden, a bastard child is born and given the name of Hervor. Her mother is scorned as a whore and driven from her home. Hervor grows up in shelters and orphanages, unwanted by society. Her life becomes a fight for social justice. In old age she tells us her unique story. Director Knutte Wester brings his grandmother's memories to life through hand-painted animated images.
