Tobias, Lærke and Thais cannot live with their parents. Together with 15 other children they live at the orphanage Skovgården. Nothing is normal when children are affected by the worst, but a lot in these children's lives is still similar to other children: They brush their teeth in the morning, go to school and have to do their homework. They look forward to birthdays, candy and iPad time, and they think it's nice when their favorite social educators put them to bed.
However, life is also very difficult because they miss their parents and deeply wish things were quite different.
In the series, we follow the orphanage children through a year and experience from the children’s perspective how it is to live in a place like Skovgården.
