A profound study of the extremes of human tragedy.

Johannes, a successful film director, returns home from a conference to find that his wife Signe has killed their infant daughter. Instead of turning against his wife, Johannes sets about trying to save her from the legal system, aided by Signe's pupils and their parents, who want her to be cured and to return to work. A humane and deeply moving testament by one of the greatest contemporary filmmakers.
