The House on the River

Synopsis

The mother Voß, her two daughters Agnes and Lisabeth, and her daughter-in-law Emmi, all live in a house on the river. They accept the war as inevitable and decide to make the best of it for themselves. Before leaving for the war, Paul gave Emmi a blouse. Agnes asks her husband Jupp, who has been stationed on the eastern front, to bring her back some fur. While the men are off at war, in a moment of weakness, Agnes succumbs to her boss's seduction. Emmi commits suicide as soon as she receives new of Paul's death. Agnes receives her Russian fur coat, but at a great price: Jupp returns disabled. When Agnes kills her intrusive boss, the mother Voß, who had up until that point put up with everything, takes the initiative. With her younger daughter Lisabeth, she liquidates the body and the Russian fur coat along with it.
