Easter 1901 in a small town in Sweden. The story of a family troubled by the past and fearing for their future, but finding compassion and redemption where they least expect it. As the drama unfolds from Good Friday to Easter evening the northern snow begins to melt and the first flowers appear. With them come renewed hope for a rebirth, and a resurrection in belief.
