Professor Isak Borg travels by car from Stockholm to Lund where he is about to receive a life time achievement award. His daughter Marianne keeps him company. Soon Borg’s personal existential crisis flares up, stirred by his memories and dreams in which he confronts his past disappointments, missed opportunities, and problematic relationships with his siblings – son Evald and Borg’s mother.
With this film, Victor Sjöström, one of the giants of Swedish cinema, director and actor, bade his farewell to film.
