Documentary film for children
23 mins – for all audience 2014

SINTTU is a 7-year-old girl, who lives with her mother Sanna and brother Toni. Her big brother Miro has already moved out. The family has recently moved into a new apartment. Next to the apartment lives grandmother, who has become an important support person.

Sanna, the mother, is a make-up artist but she is unemployed. Sinttu is aware that it is why they can’t buy everything they would like, not always even food. Together they visit the social welfare office and food aid. Sinttu says that she has the most cash in her family. She collects empties and saves the money to buy a Lego house.

Spoken language Finnish. With English & Swedish subtitles.
