Karl, a boy from an orphanage, is sent to a small island to live with the local lighthouse keeper and his family as an assistant. Hasselbond, a strict and stern guardian, initially refuses to take Karl on because he’s not strong enough to do the job, but the boy soon becomes a friend of Gustav, Hasselbond’s son, who wants him as an ally against his tyrannical father. But …Karl will do anything not to be sent back to the orphanage. Due to his unquestioning obedience and execution of orders, Hasselbond begins to like him, which brings out Gustav’s hostility. A thrilling drama with an impressive setting and an evocative soundtrack that emphasizes the polarized relationship between the boys and the despotic father.
