Plot summary

Katarina Taikon has been compared to Martin Luther King. She was born in a tent, and came to change the course of Swedish history. The story about the young girl who was denied education, learned to read in her late 20's, and later became one of the most read authors of children's books in Sweden, is also an account of the emergence of the modern Swedish welfare society - and the one group left behind: the Roma minority.
