As was customary in his 1940s films, Anders Henrikson both directs and co-stars in Asa-Hanna. The film concerns the trials and tribulations of a "typical" Swedish family over a period of several years. Adept at both comedy and drama, Henrikson was in his dramatic mode throughout this picture, which adopts a somber, almost funereal tone early on. Edvin Adolphson and Aine Taube are seen as the family's patriarch and matriarch, respectively. Though highly regarded at the time of its first release, Asa-Hanna is little known today, and is often deleted from the "official" lists of Henrikson's films.
