Ane Solingen, an independent woman with captivating eyes, has a unique inner strength. Is this why the people of the village dislike her? She has found happiness with her boyfriend Hans and they live in harmony with nature on a small homestead in the forest. One day Hans doesn’t come home. Her life unravels when she finds him dead in the woods. Some weeks thereafter she understands that she is expecting his child, and has no choice but to seek help from the villagers. To her surprise they show her kindness and she receives a gift that will change her life forever.
When tragedy strikes anew, Ane is better prepared. She knows what to do, but not that this will change her life dramatically. She is willing to sacrifice
everything for the most important person in her life.
