In her film about the creator of the popular children’s series Pippi Longstocking, Danish award-winning director Pernille Fischer Christensen focuses on the events and influences that shaped Astrid Lindgren to become the icon she is today.




When Astrid Lindgren was very young something happened that affected her profoundly, and this combination of both miracle and calamity came to shape her entire life.



It was an event that transformed her into one of the most inspiring women of our age and the storyteller a whole world would come to love. This is the story of young Astrid who - despite the expectations of her time and religious upbringing - decided to break free from society’s norms and follow her heart.
