The Orphanage

Video: ‘The Orphanage’

This thought-provoking public service announcement about parental alcohol use is brought to us by Finnish children’s charity, Fragile Childhood.

Based on the idea that ‘children can’t choose their parents’, The Orphanage follows two young children as they are shown a series of adult couples in a striking role reversal.

After a distressing conclusion to the reversed orphanage process, the video ends simply with the words: ‘what if they could?’
