Margit is in her thirties, has two children and no husband. Flashbacks provide us with information about her past aflfairs-with the Church, with a professor who left her pregnant, and with a blind man who defected to the West, leaving her with the prospect of a second fatherless child. She now shares an apartment with her children and a lonely friend, Lucy. Both women become dependent upon each other, for they seem doomed to constant failure in their attempts to capture men-Lucy's acquaintances are always passing ones, whilst Margit's concerted effort to court a man who works in the same factory as she does, seems doomed to failure.
