Excellently directed by Ladislao Vajda, this combination of gentle comedy and children's film stars Heinz Ruehmann as Sebastian, a single, kind-hearted father trying to make the best of it. He has the care of his eight-year-old daughter Nicky (Julia Folina) after his wife left him and in order to make Nicky's life as trouble-free as possible he resorts to lying to cover up bad things. As he gets steadily more caught up in these falsehoods -- only meant to mask the worst of life's difficulties -- the tangle gets serious. He loses his job and soon the powers-that-be question his ability to educate his daughter.
