A peasant girl is raped and murdered in 14th century Sweden. When her killers seek shelter in her father's house, he kills them to avenge her death. Soon a spring appears from where the girl was killed and her father sees this as a sign from above.
Ingmar Bergman's medieval revenge tale deals with a pair of goatherds who rape and murder an innocent farm girl only to seek shelter unwittingly from their victim's parents. Max von Sydow is towering as the aggrieved father consumed with vengeance despite his religious rectitude.
