Katarina Taikon is Sweden’s Martin Luther King. This is the story of the woman who learned to read and write as a 26-year-old, but became one of Sweden’s most read writers. It is also a story about the emergence of modern Sweden, and the group of people who were left outside – the Romans. Through unique archive material and meetings with family and friends, the film Taikon draws a portrait of one of Sweden’s most beloved children’s writers, but also of a charismatic human rights fighter and the Sweden she was fighting for with equal rights for everyone.
