A Matter of Morals is the usual boiling pot of intrigue and double-dealings that reveals how once an imaginary line is crossed, morality can slide inexorably downhill. Alan Kennebeck (Patrick O'Neal) sets off in relative innocence to supervise his bank's million-dollar loan to a Swedish manufacturer. Since the boss is gone at the moment, Alan deals with the sleazy manager Erik Waldeman (Mogens Wieth), who happens to be embezzling money from the company. Unfortunately, Alan falls in love with Erik's sister-in-law Anita Anderson (Maj-Britt Nilsson), and with the help of Erik, his slide into moral degeneracy begins. Alan will do anything, anything at all to win Anita's love.
