Away from every-day-life in Berlin which fades out in the afternoon entering darkness Edmond visits by advise of his older friend Kogi a mysterious 'maison', kind of a bordello, specialized for senile customers beyond their 80's. In this 'etablissement', it is possible for these old men to spend time in bed with beautiful, sleeping girls a whole night through. The girls won't awake, they are narcotised, and these old guys will feel warm and comfortable embracing the youth and the beauty of these young women. More and more Edmond surrenders to this unconscious seduction, juvenile virginity and unpredictable sensuality. Bedazzled by breath, scent and un-guilty warmth of the young women, he glides into associations and memories of his past life. Bizarre moments become inspiration and the urge to disappear next to a girl into death. Edmond returns more and more often to the 'House of the Sleeping Beauties' considering questions of morality and limits.
