A prospective police officer finds himself entangled in a web of stifling dependencies. On the one hand he is object of sexual desire for a gay night club owner and on the other hand he gets suppressed by a nymphomaniac businesswoman, who is cold as ice. Restraining his own wishes and needs for too long it all leads to an explosive point of culmination. Patzak’s movie is a seething and glaring social study, a powder keg full glowing desire, shy yearning and reckless excess.
