    • Synopsis
    • The landholder Såmal pays the tenant farmer Esmar and his pregnant wife Johannaa
      menacing visit. Esmar’s lease will expire in the fall according to the local laws. And if Esmar has no
      son, Såmal can give house and land to whomever he wishes. Unfortunately, Johanna finally does give
      birth to their third daughter. Livia, a Swedish good friend and innkeeper, tells Johanna that evidently
      the only way they can hope to have a son is for another man to make Johanna pregnant. This
      suggestion makes Esmar feel hurt but they are both aware that they have no other choice. They ask for
      Livia’s assistance in finding a suitable man. But to Livia, the situation suddenly becomes very
      personal: Their final choice is a French Captain who is Livia’s lover. The French Captain receives
      Esmar’s and Johanna’s request with empathy, and he agrees to help them by making Johanna
      pregnant. No one foresees the consequences.
