Synopsis
The summer of 1939. On an isolated, rocky island in the Baltic Sea a lighthouse keeper, Master Hasselbond, is a God-like figure, overseeing his despairing wife, innocent young daughter and teenage son, Gustaf, who both fears and loves him. Then an outsider comes to this doomed place, 13-year-old Karl chosen by default to become the lighthouse keeper’s assistant – much to Hasselbond’s disgust. Raised in an orphanage, Karl is determined to prove his worth. He befriends Gustaf, but their friendship becomes rivalry and hate when Hasselbond starts to favour Karl over his own son.
