For prospective medical student Marie, the catastrophe begins every morning when she gets up. She lives in social isolation with her strictly dominant mother, a successful gynecologist. Marie has suffered from her mother's emotional blackmail all her life, and it is almost as if the umbilical cord had never been cut. Marie finally wants to free herself from this dependency and seeks sexual contact with men for the first time in order to force her mother into resignation.
