An adaptation of the book Wonderchild (Vidunderbarn) by the Norwegian author Roy Jacobsen.
Finn, 10 lives with his mother in a small flat. They are a close team. Happy, even if Finns father is dead. One day Finn and Mother discovers that Finn has a half sister; Linda, 5 years old. Lindas mother has drug problems, so Mother decides that Linda can come and live with her and Finn. Finn becomes a big brother with great excitement. But it turns out that Linda is ”special”, and suffers from a past where she has had severe lack of support and attention. Mother takes care of Linda with great love and tenderness, and Finn becomes a warm and loving big brother that teaches Linda everything she needs to know, and protects her from all the dangers of the world. Linda is slowly but surely getting more confident. But in the meeting with Linda, something happens to Mother. She starts to remember things from her life, and dark secrets from Mothers past come to light. And things begin to slide apart as Finns means of protecting his family does unintentionally more damage than good. Wonderchild is a film seen through the perspective of a child. The story is both dark, yet funny and beautiful. About Finn, a happy and joyous little boy that slowly unravels and understands the darkness and mysteries of life…
