This Danish coming-of-age drama chronicles a shy teenager's sexual initiation. The family maid can't help but noticing the introverted lad's increasing interest in women and generously offers to teach him the ins and outs of lovemaking. But the act terrifies the youth and he declines. Some time later, he winds up making love with his comely cousin while visiting his uncle's cottage. They have a brief love-affair until she returns to college. By then, the youth has decided that sex is really a lot of fun and ends up making love to his uncle's maid, his housekeeper, and a passenger on the train ride home. Of course his trusty family maid is eagerly awaiting his return.
