Der Club der singenden Metzger

Deutschland 2018/2019 TV-Mehrteiler

Summary

Adapted from Louise Erdrich’s US bestseller of friendship and great love against the background of German emigration to the US in the early 20th century, this is the story of WWI veteran Fidelis Waldvogel, who emigrates to Argus, North Dakota to establish an existence and provide for Eva, the pregnant fiancée of a fallen friend. Here, he meets the performing artiste Delphine and her alcoholic father Robert, a clown. Delphine finds work with the Lakota Indian Cyprian in a traveling circus while Fidelis opens his own butcher’s shop in Argus, and, as a way of dealing with his homesickness, founds a German singing club. When Eva arrives with her child she quickly forms a close friendship with Delphine. But then their happiness is put to the test.
