Meanwhile, Harri Glascoe, who is in love with lower-ranked tavern girl Lucille but is expected to marry a rich landowner's daughter, endeavours to save his father's indebted estate from takeover, and departs on a sailing journey to Europe's capitals to bring back valuable goods.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
