Before his execution, Olaf writes his memoirs. He tells of his life as a struggling farmer when Renie, stranded in the village, stays one night in his home and Olaf falls in love with her. Later, two men take rooms in the house, and Olaf, to get all their money, kills one of them and wounds the other, Paul. Paul is convicted of the murder and goes to jail, while Olaf, guiltily feeling the "eye of God" upon him, leaves his farm and starts wandering. Meanwhile, Renie, who had been Paul's fiancée, vows to find the real murderer. She once again meets Olaf, whom she has always suspected, and pretends to love him. Then she accuses him of the murder and keeps on accusing him until he, worn down, finally confesses, thereby freeing Paul.
