Plot (spoilers)

Traumatised when they were children - she by the erotic effusions of her parents, he by a repulsive experience of sexual initiation built by the fathers - Elli has become a nymphomaniac, and Marco a homosexual. Perhaps to find a way out from their deviations, perhaps to support each other, the two marry. Their marriage, however, does not solve their problems, nor are things made any easier by the unexpected return of George, the English antiquarian "friend" of Marco, who now tries to seduce Marco. Marco kills the girl who loves him, whom he has rejected, and then throws himself from a tower, under the eyes of Elli and George.
