Plot Summary
Toward the end of the 19th century, destitute, selfless and lonely, Swedish writer Pontus (Per Oscarsson) is trying to piece together a living in a working-class neighborhood. His interactions with the local newspaper lead to frustration when an editor tinkers with an article he's written. What little money he can scrounge he donates to the city's homeless. Frustrated and hungry, Pontus tries to find various jobs that will, at the very least, buy him a meal and alleviate his isolation.
