A schizophrenic girl (Harriet Andersson) sinking into madness, is the focal point for the emotions of three men - her husband (Max Von Sydow) a doctor, who is helpless to cure her, her father (Gunner Bjornstrand) who is horrified to find that he can watch her disease with complete detachment, and her brother (Lars Passgard) for whom she represents the mysterious attractiveness of the opposite sex. A crisis is reached when, after a number of hallucinations, she seduces the boy.
Bergman`s film is an intense, rigorous and disturbing study of the doubts, uneasiness and creeping paranoia of contemporary life.
