The world famous Swedish jazz singer, actress and icon Monica Zetterlund's life through stardom and hardship.
The variety show that Monica plays in the movie is a mixture of different varieties she did with Hasse Alfredsson and Tage Danielsson. The venue, China Teatern (The China Theatre) and the actor with the turban is a reference to Gula Hund (Yellow Dog) from 1964. The musicians with the red sport coats are from the 1976 variety Svea Hund and lastly the number Monica performs ("Vad en liten gumma kan gno", roughly translated "What a little [old] lady can work") is from "Glaset i Örat" (The Glass in the Ear) from 1973.
In connection with the 1963 ESC show, The Supremes' chart buster "My World is Empty without You, Babe" is heard in the background. The song was released three years later, i.e. in 1966.
