Bozhana - in her young days a famous opera singer - has transformed her cottage at the seaside into a boarding house for dogs. Her whims and extravagances constantly drive her old friend Philip, a retired doctor, the dogs and occasional visitors to distraction. One of the visitors is Victor who came with some friends to watch the eclipse. He is 20 years old, has nowhere to live and no future. Bozhana falls in love with him and takes every step to seduce him. Philip feels alone and jealous. The situation leads to a series of conflicts, mixing theatricality and cruelty. A tramp - earning his living by imitating Charlie Chaplin - is also brought into the game. Finally Victor finds solace in alcohol and drugs with his peers and Philip decides to leave. But is it easy to break away so suddenly from people whom you love and hate at the same time?
