An animated documentary about growing up with a father in prison,
directed by Kajsa Naess and produced by  Academy Award winner Mikrofilm/Lise Fearnley.

In the film we interview children who's dads are in jail. The children are animated, making them more anonymous. We hear their voices speaking openly about the shame, fear and longing that comes with this situation.

Everyone else at school has a dad who is not in jail. That's the problem.
