A family drama series set in a small village in southern Sweden in the late 1940’s. There we meet Majken, a resourceful and imaginative child full of pranks and grand ideas. But sometimes Majken is a bit too full of imagination - she can not always stick to the truth which puts her in many troublesome situations.
Majken’s got a younger sister and a younger brother, for whom she is the obvious leader. Her father works as a tailor but her mother has nervous problems and is often bedridden. Majken is a brave girl with integrity and when problems pile up in the family she takes on a great deal of responsibility.
“Majken” is a both funny and gripping drama series about growing up under meager circumstances. To get along our young heroine uses her two greatest assets – fantasy and ingenuity.
