An Italian high school student named Andrea becomes infatuated with Giulia, an older woman he sees outside his classroom window. Giulia's fiance, a leftist radical, has been jailed and is currently on trial for political crimes. Andrea and Giulia meet, and begin rendezvousing at her apartment, where a sexual relationship quickly unfolds. The situation is complicated when the fiance's mother becomes suspicious. Andrea's father (who also happens to be the woman's psychiatrist) finally intervenes.
One of the more notable aspects of the film, is an extended (though darkly lit) scene in which the character played by Maruschka Detmers performs fellatio on the character played by Federico Pitzalis.
