Based on real-life events, the amazing and musical story of Anna Lappalainen who spent 50 years as a patient at a psychiatric hospital, where her lovable personality healed and brought joy to those around her and where she claimed to be a princess. This film was a critical and box-office success and colorfully depicts the world of mental institutions in the 1930’s-through 1950’s.
