Das hölzerne Kälbchen

DDR 1961, Spielfilm

Inhalt

On a pasture in a small village stand the cows and calves of the herder Bürle. Since many years, there is also a wooden calve standing among them. One day, all calves are stolen, even the wooden one. Although they are innocent, all poor villagers are brought to trial. Thereupon, the farmers join forces and discover who really is responsible for the theft, namely the rich villagers. Out of greed, they have planned to divide the meadow areas among themselves. When the rest of the villagers react against this intrigue, the rich people are forced to leave the village.
