A lonely night watchman (Oscarsson) in a Stockholm department store surprises a couple of burglars while making his rounds through the mannequin storeroom. As the thieves flee, they knock over a dummy, and Oscarsson picks it up and starts talking to it. He takes it home and reports it

stolen the next day. In his apartment, he believes the mannequin comes to life and talks to him, demanding nice clothes and the like. He begins to steal things for the dummy, including a diamond bracelet. His brutish neighbor overhears his one-sided conversation with the mannequin, comes over

while Oscarsson is out, and steals the bracelet. Oscarsson shoots him and then smashes the dummy. A tale of depression and loneliness that only fans of Bergman will like. (In Swedish; English subtitles.)
