Statare were tenant farmers who received most of their payment in natura, and didn't own the land they labored on. They were considered the lowest of the low in Sweden. Maria --- nicknamed "Rya-Rya" --- is born into this lot. She grows into a beautiful young woman men flock to. When she ends up pregnant, her life changes completely. Where in the past she had dreams of love, now she lives only for her children.

DVD-R is in Swedish with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 99 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
