11 YEARS

A young teacher experiences that one of her students, an eleven year old girl, takes her own life. Now she is going to have a meeting with the girl’s parents and the school`s headmaster. In her bag, she carries something she had forgotten to tell them about.

11 YEARS is a story about love, loneliness and displacement of responsibility.
