Although Dinah is reasonably content in her marriage with the company director Gantar, she finds herself drawn irresistibly with body and soul to the young and handsome Luke. Under the pretext that Luke will give private lessons to her son, she manages to arrange frequent meetings with him. Gantar suspects his wife is meeting Luke. At his son's birthday party, which is attended also by Luke and his girlfriend Petra, Gantar forces a confession from Dinah. In a fit of rage, he rapes her. Naturally, Luke does not stand idly by and a fight breaks out between him and Gantar. After the incident, Luke goes on a trip with Petra. Upon his return, matters become even more complicated as the web of parental, platonic and erotic love becomes even more tangled than before and Luke must steer a judicious course between Dinah and Petra.This cult film of the Slovenian hippie generation has waited ten years for the release of the integrated, uncensored version containing all the most daring erotic scenes.
