When a political situation in his native Argentina makes it unhealthy for him to continue to live there, Sergio goes to Sweden as a political refugee. Despite the fact that he finds the city cold and inhospitable by his standards, he is a warm and engaging fellow, and manages to charm and cheer up almost everyone whom he meets. Among those who succumb to his easygoing Latin manner are three women: his elderly landlady Karin, her hard-working friend Anita, and Anita's daughter Katja. Although none of them has a real claim on his affections, each one is jealous of the time he spends with the others. An aspiring actor, the only work he can find is as a waiter, but even here his genuine and outgoing good cheer proves of benefit.
