The film opens with Eva, played by Mai Zetterling, playing the piano in a darkened room. As she plays, she is visited by a young man, Erik, played by Birger Malmsten. The two quickly become close, and their relationship soon turns physical. In one of the most memorable scenes, Eva and Erik kiss passionately in the dark. This scene is particularly powerful because of the darkness, which serves to heighten the intensity of the moment.
The film also features a number of other sexual moments, including a scene in which Eva and Erik make love in a barn.
