"The golden corn...

...was standing...

...ripe".

"Love...

...was burning...

...strong".

"Joy...

...comes and joy...

...goes".

"Just as a...

...song...

...decays".

I didn't gaze into the sky,

lying in a field for a long time.

Mmh.. I told you to look

after yourself many times.

And after me too.

But you never have any time.

Tell me...

did you really,

in all those four years...

only think about me?

What do you mean?

I mean, there are many

nice-looking young men in Vienna.

Who have more time

and are less austere as I am.

You are charming,

you are often alone.

Are you jealous all of a sudden?

Tell me, of whom?

Nonsense Eva.

I know for sure that you don't think

of such things.

Sometimes our mind keeps wandering off...

gazing into the sky.

I'd like to be a a peasant girl

from this vale.

You... why?

I could lie in a field more often...

with someone I am fond of.

Eva...

what are you thinking of?

Leave me alone Jaro.

Why are we torturing each other.

It simply does not make any sense.

Your mother will say no.

And you have to do what she says.

My mother...

My father and I are simply

not good enough for her.

And as long as she is alive, you are

nothing more than a labourer on your farm.

What shall I do

Anuschka?

You don't want to leave with me.

To leave both farms behind?

And be without a home?

I can't leave the vale.

I don't want to meet you in secret

in a cornfield!

You belong to me.

And I want to straighten this out.

This will never happen!

Anuschka!

Anuschka, come!

Your barn is burning!

Your father plunged from the barn floor!

He fell on the plowshare.

Are you the daughter?

Yes.

Come, come...

Is my father dying?

An emergency operation might safe him.

Might, safe him...

You have to try everything!

- I cannot make it alone!

A transport is out of the question.

What should we do, doctor?

Who has a good cart and fast horses?

I have to go to the city

and get help.

I can't do it with my old bicycle.

Jaro's mother could help!

Maria Nowarek is the only one,

who has good horses.

Ask your mother if she is going

to lend those nags,

to save Mirko, Jaro!

Why not?

My mother is in a

legal dispute with Mirko.

There is a cart with fast horses

at the inn!

It's a shame, we have to ask

strangers for help.

You have a fine groom, Anuschka!

Shut up, woman!

Don't go inside Anuschka, come...

How could that happen?

It seems that it was Mirkos own fault.

Was he..

drunk again?

...and he went with a burning pipe

to the hayloft.

When the flames came,

he lost his mind

and fell through the hatch.

On the plowshare!

No felix, I can't..

You have to, you little sparrow.

Pardon me, my name is Dr. Jelinek.

Is this your coach outside?

Yes, why?

I have to ask for your support,

it's a matter of life and death!

Of course, what is it about?

An urgent surgery,

a skull fracture!

I have to bring a surgeon

from the neighboring town.

The person injured is not transportable.

Basilar skull fracture?

We are colleagues.

My name is Hartberg.

Edward professor von Hartberg,

from Vienna?

Yes.

My wife.

I know you very well, of course.

That is, I mean...

Only by your name!

I consider myself very fortunate!

Is there any hope

to safe the man?

It is a wonder that he is still alive...

But maybe,

if we act fast...

Do you have instruments on you?

Not everything,

but we can try it.

Let's go, there is no time to loose.

Felix!

One moment, please.

Go ahead and prepare

everything that is necessary.

And... how can I find the house?

It is the last on the hillside.

You will recognize it by the

burnt down barn.

I am very grateful professor!

Is this really necessary Felix?

Weren't these two days supposed

to be mine?

But darling, it's a matter

of life and death.

Even the man says

that there is no hope.

You don't question that as a doctor.

As long as you can help.

I think I have to lie

on an operating table for you,

to find some time for me.

You know very well,

that I don't discuss things,

that I take for granted.

Please wait here for me.

How long will this... issue take?

I don't know.

But if it gets late,

please take a room.

You know perfectly well

how sorry I am.

Don't you want to eat Anuschka?

Leave me alone.

You better go home.

Your mother can't stand it anyway,

when you're here with me.

I'll show her,

you can rely on that.

What do you want... ?

She is the master on your farm.

And will be here soon, too.

I will go and let the poor girl know.

You have to be very strong now.

Wait a couple of minutes.

He didn't feel any pain.

Is there any way I can help?

Now I am all on my own.

And this is bad.

But your groom is with you?

His mother will chase me away.

Why?

How can i pay off

the 8000 krones i own her?

Oh, I see...

your father had...

But it is not as simple as that.

She will wait!

And now listen Ms. Anuschka,

if you should come to the point,

where you don't know what to do next,

write to me.

Here is my adress.

Or...

if you should come to Vienna,

Just come to me.

Alright.

And now take heart...

and be very strong!

Thank you very much,

professor.

Cheer up!

Is my wife upstairs?

There is no woman upstairs!

I had to bring your wife to the city

last night.

Is this your name?

Do you want a breakfeast Sir?

No, thanks.

Hitch up the horses.

Yes!

Now you know the score.

Either you pay, or the farm is mine!

Give me some time!

At least a couple of months!

It's winter then!

Where will you get the then?

You would do the same thing

if you were in my position.

I can't give away my money!

I can only wait one more month,

for my sake.

But then you have to surrender

in due form.

But this is impossible Maria!

If you don't believe me,

he can testify that I am

speaking the truth.

It is like Mrs. Maria Nowarek says.

You can see here...

the accidentally deceased signed over

his farm in due form,

for use as collateral,

for good money.

For 8000 krones, paid in cash.

Here you are!

Due first of october.

And today it's the fourth!

He was a bit reckless,

the Mirko Hordak.

Takes his burning pipe to the hayloft...

Be quiet!

You can't chase me away like that.

Of course you can stay if you want.

As a maid!

What?

Maybe Jaro will forget about

marrying you this way

I wont mind if he comes to your

bedroom at night, but...

I think he will marry someone else,

with a better dowry then debts.

You!

Did you ever see something like this?

I will leave today!

Forever!

All the better for us!

Shut up Prawidel.

I beg you,

please don't run away!

I will talk with my mother!

That's what you've said

all the time.

Maybe you want me to stay

as your maid, too?

As a maid, Jaro!

Temporarily, to gain time!

Should I warm your bed,

until your mother brings a

new wife into the house?

Anuschka, I am coming with you.

I will go on my own!

It is enough if one of us

leaves everything behind!

Please, Mitzi, be calm!

My good reputation...

Oh, your good reputation?
