There’s an uproar in the small fishing village, as the greedy businessman Consul Warming forces the fishermen to work both day and night. The kind-hearted Pastor Strøm defends the men, but he’s immediately suspended and eventually goes to the dogs. When a violent storm puts both the consul and his daughter – Strøm’s beloved – into danger, the vicar from the sea defies both his position and the forces of nature to save them.
In the role of Pastor Strøm is Olaf Fønss, who had a great career in both Denmark and Germany. The film has croatian intertitles with Danish subtitles.
