FRAGMENT | Aage’s uncle wants him to drop out of law school to learn about farming on the family estate instead. At the same time, the uncle harbours a great desire for his nephew to fall in love with his daughter, Wilda. Aage has other plans, and besides, he is already in love with a young woman who attends the girls’ institute in the city. To get closer to her, he poses as a substitute teacher for the woman’s class. What he doesn’t know is that his dream woman and Wilda are one and the same person.
