The film festival, cph pix, invites to the movie Mosaic Portraits, which follows 14 year old Ying in a small community in China. Ying is pregnant and claims that she was raped by a teacher. Her father returns from his overseas job to fight for his daughter’s justice, but neither the school or the police are able to help. A journalist shows interest in the case, but also gives up trying to find answers and decides to wait until the baby is born.
