Anette and Ulf have given up on trying to hide their feelings from the world. There's a lot of gossip in Bergfoss about the relationship blossoming between the pastor and the mechanic, but as always there are plenty of other interesting topics to talk about. Adults, so busy with their own affairs, don't always notice the problems their children are forced to face as they grow up.
