About the production

The story revolves around Rebecka, a teacher working at an institute for hearing impaired. In this work Bergman displays a clear influence by the political currents of the late 1960's  – the plot involves strikes, abuse of power and hedonistic orgies in the wake of the sexual revolution.

Bergman's script, written in 1969, has until now been stored among his notebooks in the archives of The Ingmar Bergman Foundation.
