Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this children's feature based on one of the well-loved stories of octogenarian Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren, Lotta is a willful five-year-old girl who is in trouble with her parents because she won't stop saying a bad word, and they keep scolding her for it. Perhaps she will run away. But then, how would she get to see her loving grandparents, or eat waffles in the lovely garden of her family home? And what would become of her efforts to learn how to ride a bicycle without using training wheels? Adults with a low boredom threshold should be forewarned: this feature is aimed strictly at younger audiences.
