Synopsis

When Christer Berg dies in an automobile accident, a teddy bear is found in the wreckage. Chris, Berg's teenage son, finds that the teddy bear belongs to his father's mistress, Bamse. Chris torments Bamse, forcing her to visit his parents' home, and introduces her to his mother, Vera, as his fiancée. Increasingly fascinated by Bamse, Chris follows her to a resort. Although Bamse falls in love with him, she refuses to allow their relationship to go beyond the platonic. Concerned about her son, Vera follows the couple, but she remains silent, unwilling to disturb their happiness. Returning home, she learns that Bamse has been left a large sum of money in her husband's will. Finally, Chris tells his mother the truth about Bamse. Vera confronts Bamse, and the two women agree that Chris should go abroad for a year. Chris walks along the seashore with Bamse to say goodbye. The parting is interrupted by a telephone call; Bamse learns that she is pregnant by the father, and she disappears by the sea. Chris looks for her, but he finds only the teddy bear.
