In this episode Marit (9) shows us what it's like to have a father (55) who does not recognize you anymore. Her father does not live at home, so that's why she has a candle in the living room. The candle symbolizes her father and she lights it every day when she comes home from school. Every other day she visits her father in the nursing home. She makes his lunch and feeds him. Communicating with him is difficult but that doesn't mean she loves him any less.
