American adult-film auteur Sarno, on one of his Swedish excursions, spotlights ex-ballerina discovery Marie Liljedahl as an innocent nubile teen left in the care of thirtysomething aunt Monica Strömmerstedt, who plots to profit from the girl. Stateside, the film profited from being one of the first movies to get an X rating, generating heat with Liljedahl’s non-simulated self-pleasuring sequence; she and Sarno would quickly reteam for The Seduction of Inga.
