Ten-year-old Crow feels unloved and unwanted, ostracised by her peers and neglected at home. Roaming the streets one morning, she sees the briefly unattended three-year-old Maleńtswo, who she quickly decides to kidnap and run away with in order to have a playmate and a ‘daughter’ with whom to share her love in this touching film.
Showing with Palle Alone in the World (Astrid-Henning-Jensen, 25 minutes, Denmark, 1949), in which a young boy wakes up in a completely deserted Copenhagen and makes the city his playground.
