Synopsis
Somewhere in an apartment a psychotic single mother isolates herself and her 8 year-old daughter, Ti, among garbage and bottles with urine. Here the demons rule. They can walk through walls and closed doors. At least this is what Ti's mother claims. But Ti can neither hear nor see the demons her mother is talking to. 

The Girl, the Mother and the Demons is a story about a child’s infinite love and loyalty towards her mother, and how she eventually wins over the invisible demons that controlled her mother's life, and thus her own.

"When I was a child, nobody understood what I was talking about. Very least myself. The background to this story is of my own. I grew up with a mother suffering from schizophrenia. As a child, it helped me to know I was not alone and that there were solutions. But how do you tell this story for children?“ — Suzanne Osten, Director
