The Best Of All Worlds
The true story of a drug addicted mother, the adventurous world of her child and their love for each other.

One day he wants to become an adventurer. Despite everything he experiences a protected childhood, the best of all worlds, until the outside world cannot be kept outside any longer. Helga realises she might lose her son forever if she doesn’t become clean. But for this she needs to challenge her inner demons.
