Synopsis

A minimalist interview-film, dealing with one of the most disturbing life-stories from the 20th Century. Florence fled from the sexual and psychological mistreatment by her post-war bourgeois home into a hobo life of crime and freedom, just to end up in a counterculture Austrian community led by famous actionist artist Otto Mühl. There her own children were suddenly taken away and the circle of abuse started again. The narrative of 50 years it took a woman to learn to say No. An oral history about abuse, resistance and survival.
