Unforgiven is a three-part miniseries that explores a distressing subject: child violence. The series follows the story of two girls who every time their paths cross find themselves in a spiral of viciousness and revenge.
Aurore, 10, lives alone with her mother. She often escapes to the surrounding swamplands to play with her friend Chris. One evening, Aurore joins the latter in the playground of their city. They meet two children, Paulo, and his little sister Maya, who have fun in the sandbox munching cakes. Hungry, Aurore tries to take a biscuit from Paulo by force. They exchange blows, anger rises, and Aurore accidentally kills him while his sister watches. Twenty years later the two girls meet. Aurore tries to forget but the other one has never forgotten… when their paths cross again, everything is replayed and one wonders if it is possible to escape from the past.
