A wealthy corporate executive is faced with the possibility that his company may be nationalized, yet this does not seem to affect his need for amorous companionship with a variety of women. When he does take a woman home to his secluded mansion in the countryside, his caretaker's son spies on their bedroom activities. The son is deranged, obsessed with his ugly face, sexually confused, and anxious to escape his present life. One day the unstable young man finds a gun in the house, and he becomes menacingly dangerous, attacking the executive and his secretary - alone in the house - and making irrational demands that include a letter to a clinic for plastic surgery on his face. As the youth vents his tormented mind, the fate of the secretary and her boss hangs in a very delicate balance.
