A village in Protestant northern Germany. 1913-1914. On the eve of World War I.
The story of the children and teenagers of a church and school choir run by the village schoolteacher, and their families: the baron, the steward, the pastor, the
doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers. Strange accidents occur and gradually take on the character of a punishment ritual. Who is behind it all ?
