When a bachelor named Seligman finds a young woman named Joe beaten outside his house, he takes her into his home. Joe begins to tell him her story and reveals all the secrets of her twisted life, full of erotic encounters and an insatiable desire for sex. The conclusion of Trier's „trilogy of depression,“ divided into two films, charts in eight chapters the protagonist's life from youth to adulthood, and in between images of her passion, pain, lust and despair, refers to a number of non-literary works, from the Bible to the Decameron to the Marquis de Sade.
