Trama: Svezia, primi del Novecento Alexander è il primogenito dell'ultima generazione degli Ekdahl, una facoltosa famiglia di Uppsala che per tradizione gestisce un piccolo teatro: sua nonna Helena è stata una celebre attrice, e suo padre Oscar ne è l'attuale direttore nel quale recita insieme alla bella moglie Emilie. L'atmosfera in casa Ekdahl - nella quale vivono anche gli zii di Alexander, Gustav e Carl, con le rispettive famiglie e la piccola sorellina Fanny - è sempre euforica e l'educazione dei bambini è improntata a una moderata tolleranza. Un giorno, durante le prove dell'Amleto, Oscar viene colpito da un infarto: poche ore dopo muore. Rimasta vedova, Emilie prende a frequentare il vescovo Vergerus che, prima le offre il suo sostegno spirituale e poi le chiede di sposarlo. Dopo il matrimonio della madre con Vergerus, la vita di Alexander e della sorellina Fanny diventa impossibile a causa della rigidissima educazione imposta dal patrigno. Anche Emilie se ne sente soffocata e, nonostante sia incinta, chiede il divorzio che, però, le viene negato. Solo grazie a uno stratagemma di Isak Jacobi - l'anziano amante ebreo della nonna Helena - i due bambini riescono a fuggire dalla casa-prigione di Vergerus che, poco dopo, muore durante un incendio, lasciando libera anche Emilie. Ora la famiglia Ekdahl è di nuovo al completo e, dopo la nascita dell'ultimogenito, frutto dell'unione con il vescovo, Emilie propone all'anziana Helena di ritornare sulle scene per interpretare "Il sogno" di Strindberg
