Set in the late 1800's, the original "Pelle der Eroberer" (aka Pelle the conqueror) comes from Martin Anderson Nexo's novel about a Swedish boy (Stefan Schader) and his elderly father who come to Denmark in search of work and a better life. A bleak and desolate future becomes apparent when the two find employment on a farm full of abuse, slavery, and scandal. Pelle soon finds a friend in a homeless boy and together they enjoy their summer together swimming in the local lake and playing in the fields. Not everyone his happy to see Pelle and his father and soon it becomes obvious to everyone that the immigrants are not welcome.
