Ludvig von Kahlen (Mads Mikkelsen), a former soldier, arrives in 1755 on the barren Jutland heath with a single goal: to follow the king's call to cultivate the land and thereby achieve wealth and honor himself.

But Kahlen quickly makes an enemy. The merciless landowner, Frederik De Schinkel (Simon Bennebjerg), who is sole ruler of the area, believes that the heath belongs to him and not the king. When De Schinkel's serf runs away with his wife Ann Barbara (Amanda Collin) and seeks refuge with Kahlen, the landowner does everything to drive Kahlen away and exact revenge.

Based on a novel by Ida Jessen.
