A rugged and haunting tale of crime and redemption.

An enchanting rediscovery from the first golden age of Swedish cinema. Three Scottish mercenaries in Sweden murder a parson and his household and make off with a treasure chest. While the miscreants wait for the wind to shift so that they can return to Scotland, one of them falls in love with a young woman who happens to be the sole survivor of the massacre. An exquisite masterpiece.

Screening with live piano accompaniment by Forrester Pyke
