In this odd comedy-noir, Marten (Jakob Eklund) has just gotten out of prison. He immediately seduces his prison-buddy's girlfriend (Helena Bergstrom). When that same buddy (Claes Malmberg) shows up on the scene, rather than being infuriated at either one, they all form a household. Neither man is sure who is the father of the child the girlfriend is now pregnant with, but they feel driven to feats of enterprise with a child on the way. Their idea of the perfect life is to buy a portable Ferris wheel and drive it all around the Swedish countryside in the brief summertime, and loaf the rest of the year. Just now it is winter, and they haven't the money to pursue their dream, so they travel to the countryside, cut Christmas trees off of someone else's land, and sell the stolen trees in Stockholm. When the tree-farmer objects to their activities, they murder him, and are soon on the run from the police.
