This movie is about a town manager (Ola Isene) who moves into a dead writers apartment. Here the story unfolds an the main issue of the story is the town managers "new life" in that apartment. He finds some hidden love letters that belonged to the dead writer, and the love letters are written by his maid Dora (Sonja Wigert).
