“Now for the first time, working parents from all over the world are invited to see a frank view of life through the eyes of a child, who wishes his parents had more time to spend with them. Deeply frustrated with the situation, the child decides to confront his parents. The child is finally given a voice and invites the unsuspecting Mum and Dad into the child room, which has been transformed into a home cinema. Fly-on-the-wall docu footage is combined with an animated version of the child’s own drawings – creating a very emotional eye opener for the parents. After one month we return to visit the family. The parents describe how they have made changes to emphasize spending time with their child.”

The series has been sold to 24 countries
