Else and her husband want a child but Else can't have one following an abortion performed before she got married. When Jytte, her friend, a salesgirl who is the mistress of a married man, tells her she is pregnant, Else thinks she has worked things out: along with her husband she will adopt the unwanted child. But things turn out differently since Jytte decides to keep the newborn the moment she sets eyes on it. Fortunately Else was not sterile and at long last gets pregnant. The couple's dream is fulfilled.
You see a baby born right before your very eyes!
