Luise von Kummerveldt wants to become world famous, preferably as a writer. But the German Empire does not provide fame for women, and the female scope of action in this patriarchal society is tighter than the corset they have to wear. “Haus Kummerveldt” is Germany’s first fictional historical short-form series – its basic ingredients: Melancholy, morbidity and black humor.
The end of the 19th century in the German Empire. Luise von Kummerveldt and her father, the baron, live together with a lady of the house and a servant at a moated castle in Münsterland. Luise has a passion for literature; she wants to go down in history as a famous writer. Just as she is about to send her manuscript to a publisher, her father dies, whereupon Luise’s younger brother Veit becomes her guardian.
