An adult Levien (Eric Clerckk) returns to his hometown to be with his mother on her deathbed. It is then that we are witness to Levien's reliving of his childhood, when he was a 15-year-old boy. His mother is a radical who is against everything that the Government is for. His father is a tough, loyal worker who sometimes has trouble paying rent for the miserable slum in which they all live. When Levien's father cannot make the rent, the landlord imposes a heavy fine and threatens that if they don't pay the fine, he will go to jail and the family will be out on the street. Enter his beautiful and sensual aunt, Coleta. Levien grows closer to Coleta and then she begins to flirt with her young nphew. An incestuous relationship begins shortly after when they swim naked in the sea and make passionate love in the sand dunes. However, this forbidden love cannot go on forever. When Levien makes some startling revelations, he chooses to leave his betrayed mother and his lewd aunt.
