Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This drama is taken from two novel's by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Selma Lageroef. Charlotte (Ingrid Janbell) is a young country woman who is fiercely independent with an appreciation for humor. While living with her uncle the Vicar (Gunnar Bjoernstrand), she falls for his assistant, religious zealot Karl-Artur (Lars Green). Charlotte meets with the disapproval of Karl-Artur's haughty and possessive mother (Gunnel Broestroem), who drives a wedge between the two that causes Charlotte to consider marrying the country squire Schagerstroem (Sven Wolter). Green plays the role of the intense, romantic fanatic without resorting to some of the more stereotypical aspects of popular public figures who profess religion but fall far from the grace of God. Janbell's performance is riveting.
