Bosse (Magnus Haerenstam) is an ad-agency employee who takes a leave of absence to complete his novel in this offbeat comedy. When he meets Lena (Anki Liden), the two are soon living together, and the author forgets his literary pursuits to father a child. He reads every book he can on pregnancy and childrearing in order to prepare for parenthood. When the baby is born, Bosse is overwhelmed as he takes on the responsibilities of the house and baby. In a hilarious animated passage from Per Ahlin, he dreams of his baby's future. Bosse is also visited by characters in his dreams that urge him to return to the life of a bachelor. He leaves long enough to write a best-seller entitled "The Male Piggy" before returning to the woman and child he loves.
