This Swedish film takes place in a wealthy household and unveils the erotic rivalry between an aristocratic but sterile wife (Ingrid Thulin) and her feisty and prolific maid-servant (Anita Ekstroem) as they compete over the affections of the husband (Ernst-Hugo Jaeregaard). Set in 1909, it also explores the frustrations the servant experiences in her attempts to get her real boyfriend to abandon his socialist principles and marry her.
