Erica Kohut lives with her curmudgeonly mother in a cramped apartment, completly separated from the outside world. Her hermetic life prevents her from finding romance, and her only pleasure comes from teaching piano at the Vienna Conservatory. Then one of her students, Walter, begins to take an interest in her. They embark on a sexual odyssey, but Erica's increasingly bizarre, masochistic demands begin to repulse her young lover.
