Daniel (Paolo Giusti), a heroin-addict, suddenly finds himself stranded on an uncharted island, where he meets native siblings Haydee (Laura Gemser) and Juan (Nicola Paguone), who take good care of him - much to the dismay of their father (Arthur Kennedy), who thinks Daniel is disrupting the flair of this island paradise ... so he decides Daniel has to leave, or better yet die (so as to not give away the location of the island).

Daniel soon finds out what the flair of the island paradise is, Haydee has incestuous sex with both her brother and her father (which are of course the only two men on the island), and she soon also has sex with Daniel ... but with Daniel she experiences true love for the first time, and suddenly she's no longer willing to have sex with either Juan or dad anymore - and dad decides now is the time for Daniel to die. First, he persuades Juan to do the dirty deed, but Juan can be dissuaded by Haydee, so dad himself goes after Daniel with a gun, but when he has him cornered atop of some cliffs, he falls down the cliffs himself in an accident.

Daniel returns to civilisation, but he decides to take neither Haydee nor Juan with him, to not spoil their innocence ...


Even though lovely Laura Gemser has lots of nude scenes this is a very weak erotic drama that, being carried by a very feeble story, relies almost entirely on its sexy bits and exotic backdrop, but both are so unimaginatively filmed that one grows tired of them too after merely a short while, and the anti-climax in the finale does not help one bit either.

Very boring, really.
