The Swedish Muse


In an attempt to escape poverty, Maja invents the alter ego "Ulla Winblad" and becomes the center of the wild entertainment life in 1760s Stockholm. The musician Carl Michael Bellman begins to write songs about her and the line between reality and myth is blurred. Ulla goes from being celebrated to being ridiculed, and Maja will spend the rest of her life fighting to get rid of the name.
