In this film that appears to be a bizarre attempt to symbolically skewer the Establishment, three haughty nieces of a wealthy uncle travel to his island estate and make life miserable for his Arab servant. When the rich uncle dies, the servant turns the tables on the helpless, inept girls, refusing to take orders from them and locking them away in their rooms. He forces them into lesbianism, strips them, and paints them up like hookers, but he refuses to touch them. When the servant fakes his own death, the pathetically helpless girls revert to animalistic behavior to survive. As downed telephone lines and scattered radio broadcasts hint of a revolution, the servant swims out to sea and drowns, this time for good, and the supposedly dead uncle is seen breathing again.
