Nothing Grows from Moonlight

Nedreaas, Torborg: Av måneskinn gror det ingenting

This is the story of a young woman’s relationship with a married man and about her longing for love and tenderness. The double oppression she is exposed to – as a worker and as a woman – is especially clearly portrayed. She becomes pregnant, but instead of being dragged down in degradation, she stands up in rebel against injustice and inhumanity.
