Arne Bjørneboe is a former sailor with a disfigured face due to a war wound. He was offered the chance to become the first keeper of the new lighthouse built on the island in front of the harbor. Here Arne immediately feels at home and takes root, giving life to the lineage of Bjørneboe, the custodians of the lighthouse, a line that will reveal, from time to time, rebels, heroes, philosophers, brave women, patriots, smugglers. A great family saga that since the early nineteenth century comes to the sixties of the last century.
