Danish on a Sunday: Before the Frost

Harsh circumstances reign in the countryside in the middle of the 19th century and with the prospect of yet another tough winter, the farmer Jens faces an unbearable choice. If the family is to survive the winter, he must make a deal with the rich farmer at the nearby farm and forsake his own moral and the most precious he owns, in an effort to secure them all a better life. Jesper Christensen plays the lead as Jens in this fifth feature by Michael Noer.

Der hersker trange kår på landet i det 19. århundrede. Med endnu en hård vinter forude står bonden Jens over for et ubærligt valg. Hvis familien skal overleve vinteren, tvinges han til at indgå en pagt med storbonden på den nærliggende gård og gifte sin datter Signe bort.
