Created by Dunja Gry Jensen, based on the idea by Connie Nielsen, Karoline Leth and Dunja Gry Jensen.
After seventeen years in Kenya, Karen has lost everything – love, money, work, home and health. The series portrays a woman who struggles to escape her own demons, the expectations of her family as well as social norms to gain personal liberty and become her true self. From her absolute nadir and in a state of frail desolation, it is a story about how she finds the strength to turn her defeat into triumph and emerge as a unique artist.
It is the story of how Karen Blixen (1885 - 1962) becomes a writer.
