A slow-moving, pastoral picture with some steamy sexuality in the Swedish style, this film deals with an extended farm family headed by Fant. The males of the household spend the long, cold nights pursuing the nubile household helpers, while Fant's daughters Larsson and Lawler develop a

sexual interest in one another. Their bucolic idyll is interrupted by Malmsten, new to the community, with whom Lawler has a brief, unsatisfactory fling. These goings-on are punctuated by glimpses of the customary Swedish hellfire-and-damnation pastor pontificating about sin and salvation.

Delivered of Malmsten's child, Lawler resumes her relationship with her sister. The final scene has the two, with the infant, driving past preacher Pallin, who looks upon them bemusedly.
