Lisbeth Zornig Andersen has a successful career and leads a comfortable life. Her childhood, however, was marked by a lack of care, violence and sexual abuse from her father and mother. She spent time in and out of the care system, made multiple attempts to run away, and was only saved by her relationships with her brothers. Here, she goes back over her life and confronts her parents about why they acted as they did, and investigates how it was allowed to continue. The film sparked national debate in Denmark and Zornig Andersen is now a leading campaigner for child protection in her home country.
