(Tuevo Tulio, 1940).
An innocent servant girl (Sirkka Salonen, Miss Europe 1938) pays for a few moments of love with years of unwarranted suffering. Theres a child born out of wedlockand stolen. Malicious neighbors accuse the heroine of drowning her baby. Shes found guilty in court and sent to prison. Angelina Jolie has nothing on this, although, for all that, the movieby Finnish melodrama maestro Tuevo Tuliahas an uncharacteristically happy ending.
