On the way home to the run-down shack he lives in with a can of dog food meant for himself, Johan Björk is accidentally covered by a pile of car tires thrown by a man who fails to notice him. His cries for help aren't perceived by anyone except one drunk, who is caught by the police when calling for assistance. Finally, at night, a young couple making love on the pile of tires notice him. They help him to get up and assist him to his home. He is hurt in the leg and understands that he can't take care of himself anymore, so he is put in a retirement home. At the home, Johan is sitting in a wheelchair staring out the window, mumbling for himself about his past to an animated flashback. Written by

This film is a good example of the early works of AB Svenska Ord and their collaboration with the animator Per Åhlin. Still, the story is good and has invariant qualities in terms of the human condition. As usual Hans Alfredsson is playing and extraordinary Gubbe. Already as a young man, he could portray a man of any age in a credible way. Tage Danielson's direction is also as always interesting. His interest in narrative comes through very well My favourite scene is probably when the young man is out on his first date and needs to let go of some wind. He runs up the hill to kick a bucket, but misses the target and lets go of his rectal serenade, and the girlfriend is, of course deeply offended. Love it!
