Plot Summary

In the middle of the 19th century, Kristina and Karl-Oskar live in a small rural village in Smaaland (southern Sweden). They get married and try to make a living on a small spot of land. However, the small size of their land, the infertile soil, and some bad harvests make it tough. One of their children even starves to death. Thus, they decide to emigrate to the U.S. They meet a group of farmers with their families planning the emigration under the leadership of a banned priest. They sell everything and embark for the U.S. The journey on the sailing ship is long and tedious. Some of the emigrants will never reach the New World. Written by Gerhard Windecker

Edit
Trivia When filming the scene towards the end, where Karl Oskar walks off to find a better place for his settlement, director Jan Troell forgot to yell, "Cut." Max von Sydow just kept walking and walking, waiting for a "cut", and nobody realized until they took lunch. See more »
Goofs On the train west a character shows an American silver coin and yells out it has "In God We Trust" on it. The scene is the 1850s and the motto was not added to American silver coins until 1867. See more »

Quotes Arvid: What do you think it will cost to ship us there?
Robert: Around 100 riksdaler.
Arvid: Ya, well, might as well forget it. 200 riksdaler. I'll never have that much.
Robert: You don't have it?
Arvid: I will go anyway. We can travel to America on foot.
Robert: Nah, there's an ocean. You can't go on foot to America.
Arvid: Do you mean there is no way?
Robert: I'm afraid there is not. America is an island.
Arvid: Damned ocean.
