Film na motivy novely Bjørnstjerne Bjørnsona, nositele Nobelovy ceny za literaturu.
The film is based on one of the prime 19th Century Norwegian novels - the Nobel Prize Laureate Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson's The Fishermans Daughter - and pursues a theme that made his conteporary Henrik Ibsen world famous; self-realisation and the discovery of a vocation. Contrary to Ibsens darkly uncompromising vision, however, this is an irreverent comedy, fast moving and full of charm, which at the same time makes spectacular use of a dramatic Norwegian scenery - creating a truly romantic fable for today.
The story is set around 1860 and centres on the fatherless and fearless young Petra. In a cross between romantic infatuation and struggle for freedom, she suddenly finds herself engaged to no less than three of her home towns most eligible young men, and Petra is having to escape, run out of town by a furious mob. She sets off for the metropolis of Copenhagen, but ends up at a vicarage high up in the mountains, where a widowed Danish priest has sought his vocation together with his daugher Signe, a few years Petras senior. Through charm and reckless deception she wheedles her way into this little family, and a profound friendship develops between Signe and her, protecting her from the recurring scepticism of the liberal minded but stern priest. But this friendship is put to its ultimate test when it becomes clear that they have found love in the same man.
