Nine-year-old Anne falls in love with the new boy in her class, Jorgen. But so does Ellen, the prettiest girl in school. However, against all odds Anne has made up her mind: she wants him.
Anne is an energetic girl whose favourite activities are tree-climbing and running. When the new boy in class, Jorgen, moves into the haunted house down the road, Anne’s world is turned upside down; she falls head over heels in love with him. All the other girls in Anne’s class fall for Jorgen as well, including beautiful blonde pony-tailed Ellen. But that is of no hindrance to Anne; she is willing to go further than anyone to win him over. When done in the name of love, everything is allowed…isn’t it?
The film is based upon one of Norway’s most popular children’s books, “Jorgen + Anne = Sant”, by Vigdis Hjorth.
