Svezia, anni Cinquanta. Ingemar ha circa dieci anni e vive con il fratello maggiore Erik, la cagnetta Ziga e la madre, malata di tubercolosi. Incapace di badare ai figli, la donna decide di mandare Ingemar in vacanza presso gli zii Gunnar e Ulla che vivono in un villaggio. Qui la vita è completamente diversa da quella che il bambino ha conosciuto finora: lo zio Gunnar è un buontempone e, per hobby, allena la squadra di calcio giovanile del luogo; Saga, una bambina che cerca di mascherare la propria acerba femminilità per giocare a calcio e tirare di boxe, diviene la sua migliore amica; Berit, la più bella ragazza del villaggio, gli chiede di accompagnarla quando va a posare nuda per uno scultore. L'estate passa in fretta e Ingemar torna a casa: sua madre, tuttavia, sta sempre peggio e, dopo un breve ricovero in ospedale, muore. Il bambino si trasferisce definitivamente dagli zii: dovrà fare i conti con il proprio immotivato senso di colpa per la morte della madre e per aver dovuto abbandonare la sua cagnetta in città. Ad aiutarlo a superare la crisi saranno le cure affettuose degli zii e l'amore di Saga che, ormai, non può più nascondere la propria femminilità
