Adapted from a novel by the Swedish feminist Elin Wägner (translated into English as “Men and Other Misfortunes”), Norrtullsligan (or, The Norrtull Gang) concerns the life and work of four women clerical workers who also room together in the Stockholm neighborhood of Norrtull in the 1920s. They have different problems with family, boyfriends, and more or less abusive employers.
