Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

Based on a novel by Trygve Gulbranssen about a feud reminiscent of the Hatfields and McCoys, this conventional drama in a rural setting is aptly directed by Gustav Ucicky and stars Mai-Britt Nilsson as Adelheid, a woman sought after by young Dag (Hans Nielsen). Although the everyday concerns and problems of peasant farmers are a prominent part of the story, the focus lies in the machinations of some unfriendly neighbors. Even when the large rift between neighbors looks like it can be healed over, there is one disagreeable woman who specializes in squelching any deals.
