Synopsis
Thirteen years after World War II, Lucia, a survivor of a German concentration camp runs into her former Nazi captor and lover Max, who is now a harmless night porter at the Vienna hotel where she and her husband are staying. In spite of the violent and perverted nature of their sadomachochistic wartime "relationship," a sexual bond remains, and they begin an affair. Before long, some of Max's former SS comrades begin stalking them and it is decided that Lucia should be killed because she is a witness to their war crimes.
