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 after, Ane realises pregnant and has no choice but to seek help from the villagers.
