  Synopsis: Markus must adapt to a new life living with his granny in the countryside. His cruel lesson to Emily has severely negative consequences which resonate throughout the village. Forced to work the boy begins to harbour hatred towards the others in the village. The only person the boy can relate to is an old sailor living in the nearby woods. They inspire one another and keep each other’s secrets. It is only through an accidental turn of events that Emily’s mother’s intended sanctions against Markus and the boy’s reputation radically change in her eyes.
