Synopsis

An extraordinary and creative little girl attempts to comprehend the confusing adult world and to prove her own value despite her mother’s lack of appreciation and love in late 1930s Europe. Confronted by her mother’s contempt for her, Bille finds an escape in her vivid imagination. BILLE is a poignant yet inspiring autobiographical family drama highlighting the development of a grand personality who later will become one of the most celebrated female poets and writers in Europe. Based on a best-selling novel by the candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature Vizma Belševica.
