"Six years in hell" is how Yohanna describes her first six years at school. She refused to conform with the hierarchy of the class, to submit to group pressure, and for this she paid a price. Yohanna was bullied. "I was abnormal and all the others were normal. That was what it felt like." Today Yohanna is 19 years old. She dealt with what she experienced and came out at the other end as a "whole" person. »Johanna! Yohanna! ¿ from Hell to Paradise« is a powerful documentary about a young person's fight for the right to be herself. The film is also unique because the audience is able to follow Yohanna from the first grade until she passes her A-levels ¿ from Johanna with a J to Yohanna with a Y.
