THE HAPPY PRISONER
A wounded soldier, returned to his family, persuades his horse-loving elder sister to accept a marriage proposal from a local farmer. With nothing to do but lie in bed and observe people, his hero status goes to his head and he begins to rearrange lives with disastrous results. In a compendium plot we delve into the life stories of his community, accumulating in a dramatic showdown involving a charming thief, a sensitive child, a wicked stepmother and his own carer.
