Synopsis:
United since childhood in apparent incest, two sisters struggle and part as the younger seeks her freedom in a heterosexual affair. Bergman's sombre view of modern man's condition - wherein human relations are grotesquely egocentric and perversely sexual - is a shattering vision of despair. Ester (Ingrid Thulin), Anna (Gunnel Lindblom) and Anna's son Johan (Jorgen Lidstrom) travel by train to a foreign city whose language they do not understand. In an arid hostel, Ester tries to retain her sexual hold upon her sister. Anna leaves, however, and in a nearby cabaret watches a couple making love: she picks up a man, and returns to the hotel.
Playing with a kindly porter, Johan overhears Ester confronting Anna with the man in her room. Tanks roll through the city streets. Ester is dying, and several times thinks her sister has left...
