An aging butcher marries a very young, pregnant woman in this Nordic drama. The woman really loves the baby's father, a simple farmhand, but unfortunately, he refuses to marry her. Following her wedding, a big banquet is held and much liquor is consumed. As the guests become increasingly inebriated, they begin to share their deepest secrets. Later the remorseful farmhand hangs himself. Meanwhile, the drunken groom lurches home with his bride. Unfortunately he is too drunk to consummate the union. Fortunately, his buddy is close at hand and does the job for him.
