A middle aged divorced man goes through male menopause in this Czech melodrama. Karl is the man and the lovely Klara is his daughter. She is attracted to her father and demonstrates this trying to begin an affair with a fatherly-looking college professor. He rejects her and the despondent girl kills herself. Karl blames it all on the academic and swears that he will have revenge upon him. The father also becomes obsessed with a local brothel that offers patrons a veritable garden of bizarre sexual delights. A hidden video camera records Karl as his mind begins slipping away. After getting his revenge, it is the camera that reveals to Karl that he has killed the wrong man. By this time, he has turned his own house into a brothel and he finds himself utterly crushed by the destructive world he has created for himself.
