In 1623, in a Danish village, Pastor Absalon lives with his mother, Merete, and his second wife, Anne, whom he has taken in. She knows nothing of her origins and has never experienced the stirrings of love. The almost simultaneous arrival in their home of Martin, Absalon’s son from his first marriage, and the old Marte Herlofs, accused of witchcraft, who knew Anne’s mother well, will turn the young woman’s life upside down.
