Plot: The deep love between two turn-of-the-century Swedish peasants is rent asunder when a travelling preacher's hellfire and brimstone polarize their village; after casting aspersions on the preacher's creed, the young man loses everything, including his beloved, who follows the preacher on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. But halfway across the world, he still pines for her and believes he can bring her back to him. Based on the novel by Selma Lagerlof.
