Four women arrive at a remote lodge, accompanied by a doctor and a nurse. None expect the strange events that occur in the lake and in the forest around the lodge. Physical movement plays an important role in this play. There is no distinction between the imagination, memory, and the play of the unconscious. Gradually, the women start to change their definition of reality and see themselves in a different light.
