Erika Kohut, a piano teacher in her 40s, lives with her domineering mother while her father is locked away in an insane asylum. While her life at home lays the basic foundation for her psychology, it isn’t until cocky young piano player Walter Klemmer manipulates his way into private lessons with Erika that the film veers into wildly compelling, and unsettling, territory.
