Fourteen-year-old Marika was placed in a social care institution after being raped by her own father, and her mother died when she was four.

From the very first day, she tries to remind the staff that she does not belong in this building and should be placed in a children's home in Hradci. There are hard punishments for mentally handicapped girls there. The headmaster of the institute is completely unaware of what is happening in his institution. Written by lament

Not a true story
10 May 2013 | by lenka-hapalovaSee all my reviews

The film itself is definitely worth watching and I recommend it but it is not all true. Although, the film is told to be based on the story which happened in 1984 in Czechoslovakia, it was just inspired by the event. Unfortunately the director does not admit it. The real story was a little bit more complicated: the main hero Marika (Eva) was not so nice and her tutors so bad. In reality, Eva was a very problematic child, state authorities and institute representatives ignored not only Eva's but also tutors' complaints about her placing.

Besides, institutes like that one and people with mental disorders aren't usually depicted truthfully. Regrettably, people don't want to see people with heavy mental disorders so they rarely appear in TV (only with light disorders). And many clients get there because their own families don't want to take care of them. So not black-white as in the film.
