Synopsis

"A poor family is living in an old house and is faced with the choice of either paying a much higher rent or being moved out. Because their circumstances cannot allow them to pay the higher rent, they receive notice to quit. Quite by chance they come by a leaflet about a prosperous association ('Volkskraft') in Falknov nad Ohří; they become members which enables them to build their own family house." (Quotation from the censor's certificate.)
