While a brutal revolution rampages in the streets just outside his mansion, pleasure-seeking doctor Daniel Pavenic (Michael Gambon) hosts a genteel dinner party for a few close friends. When asked about a photograph of a mysterious woman, Pavenic reveals the sordid details of his erotic obsession with the woman, his aging servant Ana Puscasu (Sonia Braga) and his attempts to dominate her psychologically. As it gets late, Pavenic's guests reveal their own dark secrets too.
