Rita Hayworth was the idol of Rita's dad (Per Oscarsson). So much so that he once began a relationship with a woman simply because she looked like the star - and, of course, he also named his daughter for her. Now that his wife is dead, Rita's father is determined to discover what became of his former mistress, though he is not in the best of health. Rita, worried about her ailing father, leaves her newborn son with her yuppie husband, and goes off after him. Rita's husband is unhappy at being saddled with sole responsibility for the newborn, and soon takes off after Rita. Eventually they all meet up and reconcile with each other: mistress, father, daughter and husband.
