Sun Axeslsson and her lover, poet Pär Radström, were central figures in Swedish literary life in the middle of the 20th century. This very literate and literary film is based on one of her semi-autobiographical novels, in which she delineates her attempt to establish her own identity in the midst of her relationships with two powerful, even overbearing men, one of them the poet, the other a mathematician. Set in the 1950s in Paris and Stockholm, Mignon (as she is called in the novel) is coming to grips with her own challenges as a writer, and trying not to submerge her life in that of the verbose, egocentric, older, and well-established poet. While on a trip to Paris with Pär (Johan Rabæus), Mignon (Maria Grip) encounters a Chilean man who envelops her in his Latin warmth, but is also a very self-centered fellow. However, all along, her father quietly has backed her efforts at self expression and self-assertion.
