A thrilling, crazy, heart-warming comedy for all the family. Awarded the "CIFEJ" JURY's PRIZE at GIFFONI FILM FESTIVAL (Italy).

The young chemist (Björn Skifs) has got it made if he can come up with the right chemical formula in time. He goes home to work on the project in piece and quiet. And there is Pia! 

Seems her daddy (Gösta Engström) is having problems with loan sharks. So he has skipped - leaving Pia in the care of their nice neighbour, the chemist. It is not long before the hoods are after Pia. They figure all they have to do is grab her and dad will come running. Pia resents always being locked in when the chemist goes off to work. She wants to have fun, and she keeps escaping.

After a madcap finale everything comes to a happy end.
