Synopsis

Pappa Lasse (Max von Sydow) decides to leave turn-of-the-century Sweden for Denmark, hoping the quality of his life and that of his son (Pelle Hvenegaard) will improve. The grass is no greener in Denmark, however, and they must work like slaves on a farm to survive. Through Pelle's eyes we see how the peasants cope with their harsh living conditions, and how the landowners hold onto their power.
