Synopsis

An island in the Baltic Sea in the summer of 1939. Thirteen-year-old Karl has come to work as an assistant to Hasselbond, the lighthouse master. Hasselbond at first rejects the boy because of his age, but Karl, who has grown up in an orphanage struggles desperately to stay on, using every opportunity to demonstrate how hard he can work. Finally, Hasselbond accepts him. Karl and Hasselbond’s oppressed son, Gustaf, become friends, but their friendship changes to rivalry and hate when Hasselbond begins to favour Karl over his own son. There are issues in the Hasselbond family that Karl is only beginning to understand.
