The animated documentary film – a mixture of real film footage and animation – reports on the brutal everyday life in the orphanages of the 60s and 70s. Often led by Christian orders, over a million children were mentally and physically abused. The anonymous protagonist tells of her childhood and her very personal struggle against the arbitrariness of the nuns and their merciless authority.
