The elderly Sture Letterström travels to Lillköping together with his only living relative. They visit a statue of the famous cellist Märta Letterström. Sitting by the base of the statue, Sture tells his life story to his relative. He begins to tell about a summer during the 1940s, when he was an unemployed musician, travelling around the country to find work. unable to find a job, he eventually finds an ad where a ladies' orchestra seeks a new member. Sture dresses up as a lady, calls himself 'Märta' and gets the job. Sture then goes on a tour around the country, performing with his 'fiance' Kurre, who really is his best friend.

Soon Märta is famous in the little town of Lillköping. She runs for office and wins, and she transforms into a reputable women's rights advocate.[1]
