A sensual and poetic, yet sober look at human eroticism. An anthropologist (Jørgen Leth), collects material for a study on the nature and significance of the erotic. Identifying a number of travel destinations where he will look for the erotic in countries where he knows it exists, he seeks to examine what makes the erotic so important in human life. Forgoing a screenplay in the conventional sense, the film is based on documents, letters images and poems by Leth himself.
