Raising one controversial political question after another while taking on the issues of feminism and ethics in personal relationships, this riveting drama is set in one hotel room and focuses on one couple. A left-wing minister in the Finnish government meets an old lover, and the two quickly repair to a hotel room and consummate the passion they still feel for each other. After their sexual ardor has been pacified, the woman slowly begins to accuse her former boyfriend of giving up his early ideals and becoming, in brief, corrupted. They argue, completely undressed, and bring up issues involving a Finnish blacklist against leftists and whether or not the police look the other way when a VIP does something wrong. More revelations also tilt at their own personal relationship; an "undressing" is created in more than one sense of the term.
