Jonas and Lisa

Jonas and Lisa

A woman does laundry to support her husband and three children. The children are obliged to work at a very young age and are terrorized and robbed by their stepfather. Unable to take it any more, the little boy runs away from home. Based on article 27 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, this film illustrates children's right to an adequate standard of living. A film without words.
