Summary

Harsh realism and pure magic go hand in hand in this moving story about love, abandonment and alcohol. 7-year old Ida, a brave little girl, has to take care of her kid brother Skrubsak, feed the family and keep the child welfare officers at stake. Ida's father has left the family for another woman, and so far Mum has found consolation in the bottle.
