Young Candy is released after serving two years in prison. Olli, under the impression that he is her stepbrother, persuades his flatmates Robert and Markus to take in the wayward girl and help her lead a respectable life. But after spending just one evening in her company all three young men are bewitched by Candy. Their friendship is put to the test in extreme fashion.
