In this Gothic tale embroidered with dream sequences, Piotr Strumienski (Roman Wilhelmi) is driven to the edge by haunting memories of his dead wife Angelika, and because of his obsession, his new wife Ola is driven to taking a lover -- who mysteriously becomes paralyzed. Piotr keeps a special house on his property dedicated to Angelika, and he daydreams about making love to her there. His visions are so intense and real, that when he sees his son with a local, mute young woman, he shoots and wounds her because deluded, he thinks she is Angelika. After that tragedy, Piotr razes "Angelika's" house and it looks as though his fixation is healed, and everything should continue as normal -- but that turns out to be a deception.
