In her early feminist realistic film, under the influence of cinema verite, i.e. using the light and sounds to depict real life as realistically as possible, the director who later also worked with Ingmar Bergman investigates the life of a single young mother living on the dole, and using a direct description she lets grow her feminist belief, and criticise the patriarchate and capitalism to come to a conclusion that improving living conditions requires political action.
