This is a filmed adaptation of the famous existentialist drama by Sartre. Three total strangers--a noted journalist (Sterne), a narcissistic social-climbing wife (Gam), and a lesbian (Lindfors)--are ushered into a brightly lit hotel room. It becomes apparent that this is eternity, and they

are to spend it together in this uncomfortable fashion. The group splits up, with each person trying to kill the others but eventually developing little more than contempt for one another. Their real stories are soon discovered: Sterne was shot for cowardice; Gam was a sex-crazed woman who married

for money, then killed her baby before destroying her husband; and Lindfors killed herself after seducing a married woman and driving her to suicide. There is a terrific fight when Gam tries to stab Lindfors with a paper knife. Finally, the three realize that this is how they are to spend

eternity, and they break out in a hysterical fit of laughter before falling silent.
