Adaptation of the novel Simon Vestdijk wrote in 1968. The dinner guests at the Van der Laan family home reminisce about previous parties that ended in orgy-like scenes. While mother is afraid her now grown-up children will find out, her dear son eavesdrops on them and imagines that things will get out of hand this time, too.
