A very moving drama about a little girl who suffers an abusive family home, and is taken under the wing of her substitute teacher who kidnaps her and takes on the role of her mother (with the child's permission).

It's great how the human emotion between parent / child / teacher / friend is explored within a story where the protagonist is in fact breaking the law, always needing to be cautious and keep avoiding suspicion due to circumstances. It raises some good moral questions!
