A village in northern Sweden is the home of Daniel Dareus. He's bullied by other boys because he plays the violin, so his mother moves him to the city. Years later, as an established conductor, he suffers a collapse brought on by depression and exhaustion. He returns to the village and makes a home in the old schoolhouse. The village people are as gloomy and angst-ridden as seems common in cold climates. The pastor, in particular, is puritanical, jealous and controlling. But when Daniel takes over the training of the church choir, things begin to change. Singing draws out the repressed longings and hidden secrets of the choristers. As their emotional life improves, their singing gets better and better. The culmination is the performance of a specially written anthem - a spine-tingling and unforgettable climax for a film that turned out to be big-hearted, joyous and totally winning.
