A writer (Pierre Clémenti) returns home from World War I. He has developed a very bad case of post traumatic stress disorder. He contemplates suicide, but becomes interested in the 12-year-old niece (Katya Berger) of the innkeeper at the place where he is recuperating. He doesn't seem to mind that he is spending so much time with her. He becomes deeply infatuated with her, but can't physically consummate any kind of relationship with her. She brightens his day, but her sexuality is just beginning to bud. She begins to prefer a male closer to her age than the writer, with disastrous results. Also stars Ugo Bologna.
