Alternate title:Fadren
Summary:A production of Strindberg's play Fadren about a tragic family feud. In the bitter atmosphere of a Calvary Captain's household, he and his wife, Laura, square off in an implacable battle of wills. But she devises a fiendishly subtle plan: to drive him insane by rumoring that he already is -- and by insinuating that he is not really the father of their child.
In Swedish with English subtitles.
