"A Legend for Today"

This 1950s drama explores the life of a Danish family and their journey through faith and prayer. With three sons and a pregnant wife, Patriarch Borgen is struggling to come to terms with the identities of his sons, one of whom believes he is Jesus. Another son has fallen in love with the tailor’s daughter, much to the disapproval of Borgen and his beliefs. Through it all, the mother, Inger, will prevail as the rock of the family when during her struggles of the pregnancy, a light is shed on the four different views of faith practiced in the household.
