After all the drama in "Und Ewig Singen die Wälder", the surviving second son and heir, Dag junior, father of the next heir, lays his father in his grave. The former castle estate steward feared to be thrown out with his retarded son Lorenz, but is offered management again, and a new house for him and Adelheids's old aunt Eleonore Barre, the sister of Dag's now in-living father-in-law, Royal Guards Major Henrik a.D.

This sequel to "Und ewig singen die Wälder" is far inferior to part 1. In part 1 one can see that the cast and certainly the director took the thing seriously; for Ucicky thìs film must have been just another of his routine jobs done without much interest (like he did every film in the 50's). The scene that should have been a dramatic moment (a pile of trees in the river is blown up) is very badly managed. Script also not that good; it seems that as much as possible has been put into it which has lead to mediocre storytelling, towards the end things get clumsy. Strictly for the real fans of the Trygve Gulbranssen trilogy; they could regard it as a moving illustration to the book
