Deep in the elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson, furniture painter, sits Elbowville, where we find three brothers, Peter, Alex and Stein, living in perfect harmony until Peter and Alex fall in love with the same girl, the beautiful and charismatic Brynja. After a brotherly showdown, Alex leaves town while Peter stays in Elbowville where he becomes rich and powerful. It is when Alex returns from exile that things heat up in the family creating conflict that shakes Elbowville to its core.
