Doctor Glas (Rydeberg) become involved in the marriage problem of a couple where the man is an old priest and the woman a young beautiful girl. The young woman didn't marry the man out of love and now she is very unhappy. For some reason Glas agrees to try to help the young woman and falsely convinces the old priest that his heart is not all that well and that he needs rest and that his wife need rest. But the priest want a child above all and is not very keen to follow his doctors advice and his wife become increasingly unhappy. Doctor Glas is getting more and more involved with the girl and now has to fight his own conscience...

Not very catching movie. Rydeberg acts well as Glas and Christenson is good as the young wife. However the story, adapted from a novel, fail to lure me into its grip and otherwise the movie has little to offer... unfortunately.
