Using an innovative stylistic approach, director Vilgot Sj?oman deliberately blurs the lines between the characters' lives and those of the actors portraying them. Lena, the film's protagonist is a true woman of the 60's in search of her own selfhood. She becomes a political activist, challenging traditional values on the issues of militarism, social equality and sexual liberation. The film was seized by U.S. Customs and released in the U.S. only after the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the ruling of a lower court.
