Rasmus Breistein Writer: Oskar Braaten (novel) Stars: Eva Sletto, Harald Heide Steen, Ragnhild Hald

Milja and Julius are a happy couple working at the factory, and everything is good until Petrina shows up at the arena. Julius is bewitched by the girl, who gets him to drink and steal. Milja is soon left alone with the shame - and a bastard child. The child is placed with Honse-Lovisa while Milja is at the factory, but a doctor casts his eyes on Milja's young. He's looking for children to adopt to rich west-side people. In her desperation, Milja gives away the dearest thing she owns, for the kid to have better conditions than she manages to give him. It is Honse-Lovisa that convinces her that the material benefits can never compensate for real love and care.
