At the age of 18, Dora is just beginning to blossom. Her mother Kristin has recently decided that Doras psychotherapeutic medications are no longer necessary. As the mentally disabled young woman rushes headlong into life, a man takes a liking to her. Soon, the two become sexually involved much to Kristins dismay. Unbeknownst to her parents, Dora continues meeting the dubious man, who is obviously taken with her unrestrained sensuality. Whilst her mothers attempts to have a second child have thus far been of no avail, Dora becomes pregnant.
