Focus Years: 2015 | Country: Greece
This documentary follows Jerzy Donus, who, in 2009, was manipulated out of his children's life as the father of the children he loves and cares for. The worries and stress in the struggle for the children gave him a diagnosis of deadly cancer. In spring 2014, Jerzy decided that, before dying, he wanted to create a message for his children.
The film is about something that is taboo to speak about in Sweden: the legal kidnapping of children, known under the name of LVU, which is the short name of a law regulating compulsory care of the young â€“ in 2014, 35,000 children, at the cost of about 100 billion crowns.
The social services in Sweden have been compared with the SS in Nazi Germany and gulags in the Soviet Union. Is there a foundation for such connections? In his efforts to understand why the Swedish social services took his children, Jerzy discovers that he is not alone in this horrifying experience, and that in the middle of the democratic, beautiful Sweden, there is a world full of lies, abuse of power, and corruption.
Ought Jerzy to be thankful that his children are still alive?
