Director: Maasja Ooms

Producer: Cerutti Film, VPRO

Genres: Documentary


A painfully frank portrait of 22-year-old Jason as he undergoes trauma therapy. As in the two previous documentaries from director Maasja Ooms, Alicia and Punks, the film is a critical observation from a very personal point of view.

Ooms closely follows Jason as he struggles with the psychological effects of a traumatic childhood, which were only intensified when he was taken into juvenile residental care at the age of 16. In this film, we see Jason not only as a victim, but also as a campaigner who uses his experiences to save others from suffering in the same way.
