Lisa is a judge, a 44-year-old divorcee, and lives with Georg. For the past seven years she has had a weekend relationship with Felix, an architect and town planner. In Lisa's courtroom, the history of a crime of passion is currently unfolding. The defendant is a middle-aged woman who was involved witha teenage boy. When the youth tried to leave her, the woman viciously attacked him. Lisa's feelings about the case begin to change when she is assigned a young law trainee and falls in love; she must now sit in judgement of herself and her young lover.
