Die Fremde und das Dorf - Rosaria
Rosaria, an Italian teacher, loses her entire family in a major earthquake. To get over the trauma, she travels to the Austrian countryside with her pupils. There the beautiful Italian woman immediately arouses the interest of brothers Josef and Franz. When Rosaria and Josef fall in love with one another shortly afterwards, her decision not to return to her homeland, but instead to stay with Josef, meets with disapproval from his brother, Franz. Serious family conflicts and hostilities within the village community threaten to destroy the new beginning that Rosaria had hoped for and the love between her and Josef.
