The setting is Vienna. A young American woman was taken to hospital after overdosing on drugs, apparently in a suicide attempt. A detective police suspect foul play on the part of her lover, a psychology professor Americans. When the doctors tried to save her life, the detectives interrogated the professors, and through flashbacks, we see the events that led to the woman's overdose; stormy relationship and their sexual intensity with professors, drink heavily and numerous issues, and her estranged husband Republic. A study brooding erotic character of some rather unsympathetic.
