A woman seduces her stepson. The age of the actor playing the boy is uncertain, somewhere around the cusp of adulthood, but his character is still living at home with his father, so we may be meant to believe he is underage. They start the scene both in sleepwear, but become déshabillé over the course of the scene. We only see them kissing by the end of the scene as the son succumbs to temptation. No nudity is shown, just flashes of skin through gaps in their sleepwear.
In the next scene, we see the boy's father waking up in a hotel bed. Through the rest of the scene we learn that he apparently slept with a woman friend that night. Only kissing is shown explicitly.
The stepmother and boy are later shown in bed together. Only a bit of toplessness is shown, including a brief flash of mom's breasts, but it is clear from the way the scene plays out that we are meant to believe they were both fully nude, implying the completion of the seduction.
