At Sommersholm, the Adler family, the servants and the household stand on the threshold of the year 1867.
During the Christmas ball, Rose caused a scandal because she invited her horse groom Torkel. District Attorney Adler is furious, and wants to send off his daughter to the family in Denmark. But no one can control another's heart, least of all one that is young and in love.
Meanwhile, Alise despairs over the engagement between Birk and Miss Aurelia Collett – the beautiful but unscrupulous merchant's daughter from Christiania, who does everything in her power to capture the heart of Sommersholm's heir.
