When Edvarda arrives at the little Norwegian village, to stay with some family, she find the Lt., Thomas Glahn, very interesting. Soon they fall in love. It's a very passionate relationship, but this leads to problems. Both of them are very strong in their opinions, and both are behaving a little strange. Love turns to hate, and instead of doing all they can to please each other, they do all they can to hurt the other person psychological. They both do a great job, and what began as a love story turns into a sad and depressing story of two ruined persons. The story is told by Thomas Glahn from his "exile" in Thailand, where he in the beginning of the movie receives two green feathers from Edvarda.

The movie includes some scenes based on a post script to the novel entitled "Paper on Glahn's Death" which tells the story of Glahn's Death years later in India. This short story was actually written two years before "Pan" and later added to the novel by Hamsun himself. The two texts have also different narrators. See more
