Friends Peder and Oluf are neighbours and meet regularly for a pint and a game of chess. In secret, Oluf casts a roving eye at his friend’s wife, Mette, who is clearly receptive to his charms.

Even Mette will not be able to resist its call! That very evening, the call of the horn resounds through the night. But does it really have the power that Oluf claims?
