Bernhard catches his father visiting a brothel. The prostitute is supposed to pretend to be Lydia as a child, Bernhard's now adult sister. All at once the hidden obsession of a lifetime comes to light, exposing a web of family deceit. Did the father ever act on his fantasies? In an overwhelming silence, the protagonists pose the question of guilt. A film which defies the trivial portrayal of a social taboo. A bold feature film debut.
