Änkemannen Otto, den nyinflyttade Elisabeth och den unga serietecknaren Elias bor i samma trappuppgång på Söder i Stockholm. De har alla hamnat i en återvändsgränd i livet och lever ensamma i sina lägenheter. 
En dag hamnar en bokförsändelse som egentligen skulle till Elisabeth hos Elias. Han knackar på hos henne flera gånger för att lämna boken, men konstigt nog öppnar hon inte. Elisabeth flyter in i Elias serier och blir till en figur som han kallar Koltrasten. När de två till slut träffas lånar Elisabeth ut en roman till Elias som han mödosamt läser trots att han är dyslektiker. Otto i våningen ovanför har också ägnat hela sitt liv åt böcker och delar även han gärna med sig av sin passion.
