Based on a true story, in Sweden in the early 1900s in a time of social change and unrest, of war and poverty, Maria (Maria Heiskanen), a young working class woman, wins a camera in a lottery and decides to keep it, a decision which alters her whole life.
The camera enables Maria to see the world through new eyes, but it also becomes a threat to her alcoholic womaniser of a husband, Sigfrid (Mikael Persbrandt), as it brings the charming photographer Sebastian Petersson (Jesper Christensen) "Piff Paff Puff" into her life.
EVERLASTING MOMENTS is a chronicle about individuals with an impressive capacity to survive and, by their infinite gift for invention and solving problems, to be able - free of bitterness - to enjoy the things of life.
