Sorry / Wrong Planet

As a young girl, Mikey feels that she doesn’t belong with "people." Ignored by her mother and barely looked after by the family maid, she creates a world of her own, nourished by the Finnish folklore that defines and sustains her grandmother ("Mothergranny"), her one "connection" to the time and place in which she finds herself.
