Medieval drama. Martin and Georg are two orphans who forge a lifelong connection despite their different careers: Georg is a rising star in the ecclesiastical world whilst Martin has become an army captain. When Martin falls in love with the daughter of the local headsman - whose family are treated like outcasts by virtue of his job - Georg cannot dissuade his friend to marry her in secret, become an outcast himself and, eventually, taking over the unthankful job of executing those brought to justice when his father-in-law passes away.
