In this odd drama, a hiker reminisces while walking down a lonely mountain trail in Lapland. His reverie takes him back 10 years when he spent three days in this area with a Jewish refugee from a concentration camp. He remembers the tension between them. He remembers the way he raped her. He comes back to the present and discovers little signs that she is still around and may be nearby. He then finds her corpse in a stream. Suddenly he is filled with remorse, guilt, and a need for revenge. Eventually he finds her killer and in turn kills him. He is then seen walking away into a most uncertain future.
