A mysterious, alluring man arrives at the home of a Milanese family, wordlessly seduces every member of the household, then leaves them to deal with the fallout. The characters are driven to insanity and ecstasy by their brush with freedom from bourgeois constraints, while Pasolini poses profound questions beyond simple social critique, leaving audiences to find their own answers in the wreckage of this domestic environment.
