Treating history as a fabric woven from personal stories, animator Torill Kove imaginatively renders
her grandmother's life and work in Oslo, ironing shirts for the King of Norway. Combining historical
events and fantasy, the film playfully embroiders the experience of an ordinary woman with a
revolutionary instinct. With sharp humor, storytelling, myth-making and the important contributions
that are possible through the most humble means are explored.
