A well respected physician is driven to murder when an elderly husband tries to brutally rape his young wife. Using flashbacks, the evil elder is seen walking in the big city to a modern music score and a life that has passed him by. The story is based on the 1905 novel by author Hjalmar Soederberg but is updated to the time of the release of the film in 1968. The doctor willfully commits the murder, knowing that a third party and not himself will ultimately benefit from the old man's death.
