In an Austrian farming village during the '30s, narrator Severin (Lars Rudolph) watches an old woman, Rosalind (Elisabeth Orth) visit the bed of sleeping farmhand Lukas (Simon Schwarz). Rosalind is accused when the owner of the farm is found dead. Local farmers believe his land will be divided among them, since he had no heirs, but his will states that both farm and livestock are left to his peasant workers. When the seven peasants decide not to sell, they join the ranks of the landed gentry.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A rowdy, bawdy, and clever morality tale about the elixir of freedom and the eternal clash between the haves and the have-nots.
It is a dark morality tale about the powerful ones acting petty and cruel, while the peasants act with dignity and courage.
The characters lack much depth or complexity. Looking at their clothes is sufficient information to predict their behavior
