NotesSet in Sweden at the end of the 19th Century. A religious community is set up in a small village and wants to create a new Jerusalem. The leader doesn't want the members to have anything to do with outsiders. And he takes this to extremes when one is ill and refused a doctor. She dies and the leader is forced out of the village. He encourages people to follow him and some of them sell everything they possess and move to Palestine. From the novel by Selma Lagerlaf.
