Karla & Nordahl

(Karla & Nordahl)

Six-year-old Karla is a bright and well-spoken girl. Although younger than her brother Nordahl, she must help her sibling more than normal. Nordahl suffers from epilepsy and learning difficulties.

Sometimes Karla would like to replace Nordahl with a "normal" sister, but she knows this is not an option, even though Nordahl's difference sometimes annoys her intensely. In most cases, however, their daily lives and problems aren't much different from a normal sibling relationship. Karla likes to dance to pop hits and try on different costumes in front of the mirror, and Nordahl cuddles with plush toys. Karla knows she is one of the most important people in her beloved brother's life, so she shoulders the weight of responsibility.
