    • Synopsis
    • It’s an innocent world full of hope when the two brothers Laust and Peter grow up under poor, but also happy, circumstances far off in the Danish countryside in the middle of the 19th century.
      Denmark is enthused following the victories in the First Schleswig-Holstein War of 1848-50 where Denmark defeated the rebel army that fought for independence for the duchies Schleswig and Holstein from Denmark. After the victory, Danish political forces are scheming to annex Schleswig into the Danish Kingdom – in utter disregard of a treaty signed with the major powers of Europe and despite how provocative it would be to all Germans.
      Meanwhile, Laust and Peter grow up and fall in love with the adorable Inge, a well-read Proprietor’s daughter that lectures them on poetry, philosophy and women’s liberation! And Inge returns their love. She loves Peter for his sensitivity and intellect, and Laust for his strength and drive.
