Using a variety of formats ranging from fictional segments to documentary interviews, the present-day situation of working women is explored. Among the vocations of the women whose lives are highlighted are judo-instructors, truck drivers, and this film's film editor. The fictional story depicts the apparently happy and apparently ordinary marriage of a young couple who share housekeeping and shopping duties. When the film finally shows what they are saying however, their conversation consists almost totally of quotations from Fredrich Engels' book Family, Private Property and the State, and they suffer from fairly traditional gender stereotypes.
