Love, pride and class collide in this poignant and polished rural melodrama that opens in pre-Second World War France. Featuring lush, sun-soaked visuals and honest performances, the charmingly old-fashioned tale sees widowed well-digger Pascal torn apart when the reputation of his beloved daughter Patricia is tarnished. Patricia has fallen pregnant after an ill-fated romance with the fighter-pilot son of wealthy local shopkeepers, the Mazels. For honour-obsessed Pascal, it’s an incredibly shameful situation that sullies his family name and threatens to destroy his close relationship with his beautiful "princess". The situation is worsened by the snobby Mazels' refusal to acknowledge that their son, who has gone away to the front, is the father of Patricia’s unborn baby. But though Pascal and Patricia gradually make their peace, tragic news from the Mazels brings a new burst of emotional strife.
A man on the run for murder and his girlfriend end up working on the land of a rich, aging farmer - and start planning how they can get his money.
