Young Astrid Lindgren, future author of the beloved Pippi Longstocking series, is eager to break free from the confines of her religious upbringing, so she accepts an internship at a local newspaper and attracts the attention of its editor. Astrid becomes pregnant, and later secretly gives birth to a son whom she leaves in the care of a foster mother. When the foster mother falls ill, Astrid uses her imagination and flair for storytelling to reconnect with her son. In spite of her struggles, Astrid emerges with a newfound courage that will later form the foundation of a vast and beloved body of work.
