Copenhagen during the Depression. 10 year old Gustav Adolf lives with his parents Axel and Svea in a small dark flat. They live a relatively poor life, but the atmosphere is warm, loving and rich with laughter. Axel's Swedish wife Svea is longing for an out-door life and she wants to make a journey to the beach. Axel, who has lots of imagination and ideas, manages - despite his objections in the beginning - to arrange an excursion with all their neighbours to the beach. The journey becomes an overwhelming experience tor everybody - and especially for Gustav Adolf.
