One evening when Boris is watching television, he notices that the picture looks blurry. The repairman who comes over tells him that the problem is not the television but, rather, Boris's eyesight. A trip to the eye doctor confirms the diagnosis – Boris is an astigmatic. How important this sounds! When he gets his glasses, a whole new world unveils itself to him. Boris decides to get a job with his "talent" and starts work at the radio factory as a foreman. However, nothing turns out as Boris expects in this sweet story enlivened by Olof Landström’s sprightly cartoon-like illustrations.
